Piano accompaniments abound online...but the reverse?
« on: November 12, 2016, 03:09:46 AM »
Hi all,

I'm just wondering if anyone has encountered recordings of, for example, the violin part only for a violin sonata (etc)?

There are heaps of recorded piano accompaniments available, and I fully realise why they're needed!
I just think it could be fun (well, for me at least) to occasionally have a play around with violin/cello sonatas, piano trios, etc without committing to the piece & tracking down others equally committed.

Has anyone even seen anything like this? I'd happily pay money for CDs/mp3s of such things if they existed!

Thanks in advance   :D

Hi anchael, welcome to Pianostreet!

I would imagine that due to the interconnected nature of chamber music, it would not be as forgiving as for example the orchestral part for a concerto.  Nonetheless, an interesting idea.

I agree completely, it would not be the same. But could be enjoyable to just sit down with one for a few hours occasionally. It wouldn't be too hard to record pieces with the piano accompaniment on it's own stereo channel (could then just shift the speaker balance to hide the piano track, or have the full recording to mimic the specific 'interconnectedness' of that particular interpretation).

Maybe I should invent this then :)

Some karaoke systems use the difference between R and L channels to either include or exclude vocals.  You just need to do this with Mozart now  ;D
