Haydn Horn Concerto 1
What is an ‘orchestral accompaniment CD’?
Simple: it’s a concerto recording but without the solo part. So you – the instrumentalist – are the soloist.
Fantastic! Tell me more…
say you’re a student at music college or university, or maybe you’re
still at school, or maybe you’re a professional player, or a keen
amateur. Whichever you are, you are totally in love with your
instrument and you relish the opportunity to play the major solo works
for your instrument in their proper orchestral form – not just with a
piano reduction accompaniment. Just imagine how exciting, how helpful
to your playing, and what immense fun it will be to rehearse a complete
concerto - with a full orchestral accompaniment – whenever, however
often, and wherever you want to.
Sounds good, eh? Just imagine how thrilling it will feel…
may be lucky enough to have a gifted rehearsal pianist at your
disposal, always fully prepared and ready to work with you. Most of us
do not and we all know that even the best piano reductions are
inevitably a compromise. By contrast, you will find that rehearsing
with an excellent full orchestra - whenever you want it - adds a
completely new dimension to your experience.
