        I bought this book for my daughter for violin as she was told that she could play this piece for her Grade 5 examination. However, the main 'Walking in the Air' theme is less that six lines of music and therefore it doesn't seem feasible for this to be a Grade 5 piece, but having said that the tune is great and the other two pieces are more enjoyable, being longer and more challenging.

        Great music beautifully arranged for violin & piano.Pieces vary from grade 2-ish to grade 5 for the violin and piano part not too challenging either. A welcome addition to your Christmas repertoire
