The Grade 8 Violin Anthology (from 2024) comprises a broad selection of examination pieces from lists A, B and C of the Associated Board syllabus from 2024, together with a valuable selection of fascinating repertoire suitable for the own-choice section of the Performance Exam.
The anthology supports students preparing for ABRSM Practical Exams or Performance Exams and is accompanied by Performance Notes by Jessica O’Leary, a professional violinist, teacher, ABRSM examiner, presenter and adjudicator. The notes give advice on technique and interpretation for each piece, and guidance on preparing an effective programme.
