I've only been to one slow melody contest in my life so I don't really know the form. What do people think are the important things to bear in mind when choosing a piece? What sort of length of piece? What do adjudicators of such events look for? Does it matter if it's basically easy (but rather nice) as long as it is played well? I have a piece I would like to play, but it's hardly more than a minute and a bit long, doesn't go high (c'mon, i'm a flugel player!). The alternative is some old standard which is nice enough but could be considered hackneyed... The contest is a local association contest, but it will have some decent players going (as opposed to me, before anyone says...)(and i'm only going for my own satisfaction, no-one's life depends on it!) Any ideas?
