The Best Of Grade 5 Violin

Books and CDs | Violin, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Faber Music
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Over the years, many examination pieces have captured the imagination of teachers and students, but the stars of past syllabuses are often forgotten. This collection 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.

Jessica O’Leary has a successful career as a teacher, professional violinist, ABRSM examiner and seminar presenter. She has toured and recorded extensively as a member of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, and has performed with Madonna, Led Zeppelin, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Opera House. She teaches violin and viola and directs string ensembles at St Paul’s Girls’ School, Eltham College and Junior Guildhall London.

          Fantastic selection of music
          Some seem a little difficult for Grade V

          This collection of 'the best Grade 5 pieces ever selected' is excellent value and useful for general practice/ performance purposes, having pieces from Baroque to modern and, most importantly, A CD with piano accompaniments included. Some, e.g. Elgar's Salut d'Amour seem a little hard for Grade 5, but most sit easily under the fingers and I am not going to argue with the publisher about the selection. Highly recommended.
