About the PDF (Notes)
The tempo marked for this (quarter note = 80) is only an approximate guide. I like it to be very flexible, sometimes almost like speaking and sometimes with an “in tempo” feel – for example at letters D and E. In general I like all notes to ring on naturally. As mentioned in the editorial section I want the pages to look as clear as possible, so I have not been pedantic about rests, etc. The rests which are put in are either for the musical sense or because it looks better – they should be ignored! – John Williams.
