Great that there are so many of the 'alternative' pieces in this one book
Considering the cost, I would have thought ABSRM could have afforded to have someone (maybe Richard Jones) sort out the fingering - as it is, every piano teacher who buys this will need to study and sort fingering (in fact, I can't EVER remember buying any music that hasn't been fingered - so, poor show in this respect)

A wide variety of the Grade 8 ABRSM pieces, which cover all sections of the exam; 24 pieces altogether. For students with small hands, several of the pieces in the standard ABRSM book, are unplayable. The synopsis at the back of the Anthology for each work is extremely useful, too. I buy this Peters Volume each time it is published, and have done for many years.
The only drawback is that there are no fingerings. This does enable me to work out the fingerings for my individual students, but this is time-consuming for me.
