Over the years, many examination pieces have captured the imagination of teachers and students, but the stars of past syllabuses are often forgotten.
The Best of Grade 5 Violin brings together best-loved grade 5 pieces, including Pleyel’s Sonatina in B flat, Fauré’s Sicilienne and Wedgwood’s Survivor.
Containing fresh editions of folk and classical masterpieces alongside contemporary favourites, all pieces have been rigorously researched by violin expert Jessica O’Leary. A CD of performance and accompaniment tracks is included, as are useful practice tips. This book includes pieces from current and past Trinity and ABRSM syllabuses.
