Hi, I was wondering, I am currently preparing La Flute de Pan by Mouquet for my grade exams. When I had a look in the online shop of ABRSM, there were almost anything but - the accompaniment for this piece. Is it available on CD? Two of its movements are grade 8 level pieces. And if not, where can I get these play alongs? Anyone an idea. I have searched the internet, but haven't really found something I could properly use.

Pan et Les Bergers & Pan et Les Oiseaux were on the previous grade 8 ABRSM c.d (2004+) (I've just checked my copy) - piano & flute tracks & piano alone. Maybe try looking on eBay or Amazon for it?

You can download the tracks from the downloads section of the ABRSM shop, for accompained instruments you get the track played with the accompaniment and also the accompaniment alone so you can practice along with it. There are downloads available for piano, violin, clarinet and flute for Grades 1-8, the tracks are 79-99p each and you can download one track from section A, B and C for ?1.95-?2.50 (depending on grade).
The flute ones are here:http://abrsmpublishing.dloadshop.com/index.asp?a=5
You can use Speedshifter to slow down the track or the accompaniment so you can play along if it's not up to speed yet:http://www.abrsm.org/en/home?page=students/speedshifter
