List of Weiss pieces at grade 6-8

Post by rjc7313 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 6:52 pm

I have to play a Baroque piece for an exam and I thought Sylvius Leopold Weiss would be a good choice. I haven't played any of his pieces but am looking for something between grade 6 and grade 8. Would love if you could give your suggestions(and what editions are best)

Btw I'm not saying they have to be on any grade course, when I say level 6-8 I'm talking about in comparison to other pieces on the grade courses

ABRSM publish a book of pieces by Weiss specifically for their grade 6-8 exams. They are all wonderful but a favourite of mine is the Menuet, which is grade 6.

The Capriccio was in the Trinity Grade 7 book a few years ago - that's a really good piece!

One of my friends was studying this recently for grade 8.
