Essential Repertoire for the Piano EIGHT

Essential Repertoire for the Piano Eight is a collection of Baroque, Classical and Romantic pieces. This is an excellent source of material for the pianist who is late intermediate to early advanced level.

This list will be at conservatory level/grade eight for the royal schools and Conservatory Canada (eg. AMEB, ABRSM, RCM and CC). Please consult your syllabus for which pieces are eligible for an examination. Most conservatories allow for irregular list pieces with their approval. There is no charge for this service with Conservatory Canada.

These scores feature MIDI performances by Andrew Harbridge. Both hands have been split in the recording to facilitate one-hand-at-a-time practice. Essential Repertoire for the Piano Eight is a level eight book.
