ABRSM grade 8 piano pieces

The ABRSM Piano Exam Pieces Grade 8 book with CD contains 12 selected pieces from the 2013-14 ABRSM piano grade 8 exam syllabus, by composers from across many different musical eras and many different countries, from famous German composers J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Schumann, to French impressionist Claude Debussy, to Canadian jazz pianist Oscar Peterson, among many others. There are 3 pieces from lists A and B and 3 from list C in the ABRSM Piano Exam Pieces Grade 8 book with CD - you have to choose one from each list for your grade 8 ABRSM practical exam. Many students just choose pieces from this book for their ABRSM exam, however there is also a list of alternative pieces to choose from in the front of the book. This 2013-2014 syllabus is valid from 1 January 2013 until the end of the spring 2015 exam period in the UK, and until 31 December 2015 in all other countries.

CD’s of example performances

The 2 CD’s which come with the ABRSM Piano Exam Pieces Grade 8 Book with CD contains recordings of all the pieces from the entire grade 1 syllabus (not just the 9 selected pieces in this book), with a full track-listing, which might help you choose which pieces to do, and give you an idea of how it should sound, to help you practise. There is also a Speed Shifter app available from ABRSM to reduce the speed of the pieces without affecting the pitch, perfect for practising!

Other requirements and tips

This ABRSM Grade 8 Piano Exam Pieces book with CD includes brief notes on each piece and its composer and translations of non-English titles, to help you put the pieces into their musical context. It is clearly printed, and the manuscript is consistently marked with editor’s fingerings, dynamics, articulation, metronome marks and performance directions. There is also a handy list of grade 8 scales and arpeggios you will need to know in the front, and the covers have a cool new design.

The sections of your exam

Your grade 8 piano exam is made up of four sections: three pieces chosen by you from this repertoire book, scales and arpeggios, sight-reading, and aural tests.
