Piano accompaniment backing tracks
William Hurlstone wrote his four Characteristic Pieces in 1899. The Ballade is the most substantial of the four, written in a rich Romantic style, while the Croon Song brings out the clarinet's melodic qualities. The Intermezzo and Scherzo are lighter in tone, and quite virtuosic in places.
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.
