ABRSM Grade 7 - Piano Exam Pieces

Fauré - Andante Moderato (No. 5 from Pièces brèves, Op. 84)

ABRSM Grade 7 – B1

Originally written as a sight-reading test for the students of the Paris Conservatoire, this piece requires a sensitive ear for tone, colour and layering of sound as well as considerable delicacy with the pedalling. The pedal markings given in the score are by no means comprehensive but serve as a starting point. I recommend some hand redistributions for the rising arpeggio figures, allowing the left hand to take some of the notes.
