Approved Exam Music
Recommended for the following exam grade(s):
Grades: 4, 5, 6
Well-crafted arrangements of music from the 16th century to the present day for bassoon and piano. Pieces are presented in chronological order and show the year in which they were written to give a sense of the different styles of music through time. These volumes include contrasting styles from Sweelinck to Joplin and from Verdi to Maxwell Davies. Many of the pieces feature on the ABRSM Bassoon syllabus while also being an invaluable source of further study and recital repertoire for Grades 4-6.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
