New Music This Week, 03/05/11

With the Associated Board changing the aural parts of their exams and publishing their new Aural Training in Practice books (Grades 1-3 and 4-5), Faber Music are in the process of publishing revised versions of their series, Improve your Aural.

As is often the case when a publisher revises a whole series, not all the books are available yet and the order of publication seems slightly random. So available now are Grade 3, Grade 4, Grade 5 and Grades 7-8.

A new publication for piano from Christopher Norton, Microballads, is designed for pre-Grade 1 to Grade 3.

At this time of year I start to get swamped by pamphlets from publisher telling me about new publications and not-so-new publications which they think I might have missed. Plus the exam boards start to give advance notice of their new syllabus and related publications which will start to come out in June. So I'll start to wade through all of this and do weekly updates again.
