The Edition Peters Grade 8 Piano Anthology comprises 20 pieces from lists A, B and C of the Associated Board syllabus, together with 4 pieces suitable for the own-choice section of the Performance Exam. The anthology supports students preparing for either the Practical Exam or the Performance Exam. Those preparing for the Performance Exams are aided by Performance Notes by Norman Beedie (Lecturer in Classical Improvisation, Piano and Conducting at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland), which give advice on technique and interpretation for each piece, and guidance on preparing an effective programme. The pieces in this volume are drawn from the extensive range of piano music in the Edition Peters catalogue – one of the widest available. The own-choice pieces provide a valuable selection of fascinating repertoire suitable for the Performance Exam. Contents: Prelude and Fugue in G, BWV 884 (J. S.
