"An all encompassing anthology set with a wide range of pieces all set in the baroque or romantic periods. A big enough selection to suit all tastes and master various techniques without seeming repetitive. Some pieces are easier whilst a few are noticeably harder but I feel this is good as it provides a challenge giving more value to the book. Would recommend for all players that have taken their grade 5 recently and want a bit of a break before cracking on with grade 6. Or even more skilled players that want something easier but requiring a certain amount of skill while relaxing."
