Hello!! I have just joined the forum!! It is a pleasure to be part of it. I am ready to expand and enhance my piano knowledge. This is my question: I am sure many of you are familiar with the folowing syallubs and pieces: https://www.abrsm.org/fileadmin/user_upload/diplomas/performance/performanceDiplomaFull.pdf That syllabus is widely used in English-speaking countries, and as you can see, it includes fundamental advanced-virtuoso piano works by key composers. Nonetheless, I have always wanted to know the reasons this institution (ABRSM) has neglected legendary piano works from fabled composers who perhaps wrote the most difficult piano music ever composed. I am talking about Balakirev (Islamey), Alkan (Etudes), Reger (Intermezzi Op. 45, Handel-Bach variations), Scriabin (Etudes Op, 42 - Sonatas) and Godowsky (Studies on Chopin Etudes ) What is your clue? Thanks a lot!!
