Just wondering whether it's even approachable. I'm most familiar with ABRSM grades.

I think it's safe to say that when pianist-composers write stuff for themselves to play, they want to show what they can do. Otherwise, there's no point writing it.

Think FRSM level if you're familiar with ABRSM exams: https://gb.abrsm.org/en/our-exams/diplomas/


"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."

Can you play the initial Mozart piece well? If yes, this jazz score needs that competency and then is a notch above in skill (IMHO from reading the jazz score online only)
