Piano accompaniment backing tracks
Bartok wrote his first Rhapsody in 1928. It is a substantial work in two movements, the first containing a Hungarian melody against a drone-like accompaniment. Bartok provided two different endings for the second movement, and both are included here. The movement itself is formed from a series of new melodies building towards an accelerando.
These piano accompaniment tracks help make practising more effective and enjoyable! They are recorded by a professional accompanist and can help you keep in tune and in time, as you listen to the piano part for this work. Many customers have found them a cost-effective alternative to hiring a pianist in the early stages of learning a new piece, whether that be for an exam, recital, audition or simply for fun! Please scroll down for samples and details of each movement.
Bar 76 (rehearsal mark 12) - click-beats indicate the beats in this bar where violin playsBars 84-90: click-beats help keep the pulse in these bars.
From the 'alternative ending' part at figure 24, crotchet click-beats are used to keep the pulse in various bars where I consider it to be helpful.
