I am slightly weirded out that the 2001 grade 8 info is so illusive.  Being so recent I thought it would be easy to get hold of.

I can sort the Grade 8 2001-2004 - a local music shop was virtually giving away  old CD's of exam music the other day and I see this is one of them.

 

Here is the track listing:

 

List A

1. J.S. Bach.  Concerto in A minor BWV 1041: 2nd movt. Andante.

2. J.S. Bach.  Partita for solo violin no. 2 in D minor BWV 1004: 1st movt.: Allemande

3. Beethoven.  Sonata in E flat, op. 12, no. 3.  ┬úrd movt., Allegro molto.

4. Haydn,  Concerto in G. 1st movt. Allegro moderato.

5. Leclair Sonata in D, Book 4, Op. 9, no. 3: 4th movement, Tambourin: Presto

6. Mozart Adagio in E, K261.

7. Telemann Concerto in G minor, TWV 51:g1, 2nd movt. Adagio

8. Telemann Concerto in G minor. TWV 51:g1, 2nd movt. Allegro

 

List B

9. Brahms Sonata in A, Op. 100: 1st movt. Allegro amabile

10. Brahms Sonata in A: Op. 100: 3rd movt. Allegretto grazioso (quasi Andante)

11. Franck Sonata in A, 4th movt. Allegretto poco mosso

12. Granados Danza Espanola no. 6 Rondalla Aragonesa

13. Grieg Sonata in G, Op. 13, 2nd movt. Allegretto tranquillo

14. Suk, Appassionata, no. 2 from 4 pieces, op. 17, vol. 1

15. Suk, Un poco triste, no. 3 from 4 pieces, op. 17, vol. 2

16. Tchaikovsky Concerto in D, Op. 35. 2nd movt. Canzonetta: Andante

17. Wieniawski Mazurka "Obertass", Op. 19, no. 1

 

List C

18. L. Berkeley Toccata, op. 33 no. 3 from "Elegy and Toccata"

19. Copland, Hoe down, from "Rodeo"

20. Finzi, Introit arr. Ferguson

21. Gershwin, Summertime and A Woman is a Sometime Thing (from "Porgy and Bess") (Gershwin Selections

from Porgy and Bess, trans. Heifetz)

22. Kabalevsky Violin Concerto Op. 48, 1st movt. Allegro molto e con brio.

23. Ravel. Sonata for Violin and Piano, 2nd movt. Blues:Moderato

24. Turina La Oracion del Torero, arr. Heifitz

 

I suppose where some of these are two movements from the same thing you had to play both?  Can't tell without the actual syllabus.

 

If anybody wants the Senior Grade Syllabus for Piano in 1896 I can do that too!  - the book was 20p in a charity shop.

That would make sense with the Telemann, but the Brahms movements must have been either/or, and the Suk options are in two seperate volumes (plus the Appassionata has appeared by itself on other syllabuses). The Gershwin is a single piece which includes both songs.

Wow!  With the grades 7 and 8 from 1991 that will give a data set from 1971 to the present day, plus some older stuff.  That's around fifty years worth of info.  Whoooo!  Hooo!

 

Now comes the fun part of trying to tidy it up, as the referencing format seems to have changed over the years, and there are other bits and pieces to try and standardise, so it is most usable as a search tool.

 

It's finally coming together.

So, that's all the main choices for 1971 onwards inputted.  Thank you so much to all that helped with it.

If any of you are interested in the data, for your personal use (as a student or teacher) then please PM me.

 

There's nothing for 1967/68 or 1969/70 or put another way:-

Nothing pre 1971-1972 syllabus except

1955-1956 grades 1-7
1959-1960 grades 1-7
1961-1962 grades 1-7
1963-1964 all

1965-1966 all

So any charity shop/attic finds to fill those blanks would be fab.

 

If anyone has group information for 2005, grade 6, I don't have that.  If anyone could but the group data in there that would be fab.
