ABRSM Cello Exam Pieces 2020-2023 - Grade 1 (Score, Part & CD)

- +

The ABRSM Cello syllabus for 2020-2023 offers teachers and students more choice than ever before, with new features that will appeal to learners at all grades. The repertoire lists have been refreshed and are organised in a revised structure which moves away from lists devised solely by period of composition and instead concentrates more on the style of the music. There is also a focus on cross-string teaching at the lower grades, with some of the same pieces being set for multiple instruments.

The Cello Exam Pieces books bring together, for the first time, a selection of nine pieces from the syllabus at Grades 1-5, covering lists A, B and C. Meticulously edited and presented, these volumes comprise rich and varied repertoire from which to create an exciting programme for an exam or concert. Each volume also includes helpful footnotes and syllabus information.

Audio recordings of the nine pieces in each book are available for Grades 1-5 on CD as part of the Score, Part & CD editions.
