Bartok: Rhapsody No.1 for Violin
Includes accompaniments for:

1. Prima parte
2. Seconda parte
2. Seconda parte (alternative)



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.

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.
