List CPiano requirements and information: Pieces. Programme planning: Candidates must choose one piece from each of the three lists (A, B and C) in each grade. In the exam, they should inform the examiner which pieces they are performing, and they are welcome to use the Exam programme & running order form (PDF) for this purpose.
Exam music & editions: Wherever the syllabus includes an arrangement or transcription, the edition listed in the syllabus must be used in the exam; in all such cases the abbreviation . For all other pieces, the editions quoted in the syllabus are given for guidance only and candidates may use any edition of their choice (in- or out- of- print or downloadable). Interpreting the score: Printed editorial suggestions such as fingering, metronome marks, realization of ornaments etc. Whether the piece contains musical indications or not, candidates are always encouraged to interpret the score in a stylistically appropriate manner. Ultimately, examiners’ marking will be determined by consideration of pitch, time, tone, shape and performance, and how control of these contributes to the overall musical outcome. Pedalling: The use and control of pedalling, and its effect on tone and shape, will be taken into account by examiners, who will be assessing the overall musical outcome rather than the strict observance of any printed pedal indications (which may therefore be adapted or omitted, as appropriate). Pieces whose full musical effect is heavily reliant on pedalling (whether marked in the music or not) should be avoided if appropriate pedalling cannot be managed.
Hand stretch: Candidates should choose the most suitable pieces for their hand size from the syllabus lists. If necessary, they may occasionally adapt the music by .
No additional marks are awarded for playing from memory. Page- turns: Examiners will be understanding if a page- turn causes a lack of continuity during a piece, and this will not affect the marking. A variety of solutions for awkward page- turns exists, including the use of an additional copy of the music or a photocopy of a section of the piece (but see . In cases where candidates believe there is no solution to a particularly awkward page- turn, they may apply to bring a page- turner to the exam. The request must be made to the Syllabus Department no later than the closing date for entry, and details of the piece, edition and nature of the difficulty should be given.
If permission is granted, a confirmation letter will be issued which must be taken to the exam as verification. Examiners are unable to help with page- turning. Photocopies: Performing from unauthorized photocopies (or other kinds of copies) of copyright editions is not allowed. ABRSM may withhold the exam result where it has evidence of an illegal copy (or copies) being used. In the UK, copies may be used in certain limited circumstances – for full details, see the MPA’s Code of Fair Practice at www. In all other cases, application should be made to the copyright holder before any copy is made, and evidence of permission received should be brought to the exam.
