These recordings are not out there to say: this is how it should be done, or this is how ABRSM wants you to play. Not at all! They are our interpretations, and our main purpose was to have fun and enjoy ourselves! Of course, we hope you will find them so as well! We have tried to stay true to the music, as we consider observing the score and the details of high importance in understanding the intentions of the composers and arrangers.
There are so many lovely pieces in this set! And quite a few of them, when you think about it... there are 7 grades, each with 9 pieces in the books and 9 extras (always have a look, sometimes there are some lovely surprises in there!), and grade 8, with 12 pieces in the book and 20 more extras... that really makes it... [7x(9+9)]+[1x(12+20)]=7x18+32=126+32=158 pieces of music! Oh, dear me... it's the first time I do the math... Okay... Maybe a bit more than just a few days!
We're starting with the main selection (the published books) and we'll keep on adding to it until we finish them (or decide we've had enough! haha).
Good luck, enjoy, and happy exploring!
