Over the years, many examination pieces have captured the imagination of teachers and students, but the stars of past syllabuses are often forgotten. The Best of Grade 5 Violin brings together best-loved grade 5 pieces, including Pleyel's Sonatina in B flat, Faure's Sicilienne and Wedgwood's Survivor. See Jessica talk about a piece from the Grade 5 book here.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This comprehensive collection of violin pieces is a super addition to the lexicon of violin albums. Each volume contains between 14 & 15 varied pieces in style period and technical demands. ....There is also an invaluable note on the cover page as to which pieces are in the current AB and Trinity exam board syllabuses. ...The CD's are of real benefit and good value for the purchase price of GBP10. Each gives 8 piano A's (!) from which to tune, and also a useful click track preceding accompaniment tracks that start together with the violin.

ARCO Magazine, Summer 2013

These are well produced and presented editions to include CD's offering a good mix and blend of styles through the best exam pieces every for the major boards....All 5 volumes make a significant contribution of pieces to play for pleasure, enrichment and enjoyment. A very useful resource.
