Piano accompaniment backing tracks
The Viola Concerto was one of the last pieces Bartok started writing, months before his death in 1945. As he only left sketches and instructions, the work was finished by Tibor Serly, and that is the version presented here. While the first movement is long and rhapsodic, the second and third movements are much more brief, this is as Bartok instructed.
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. Please scroll down for samples and details of each movement.
