Piano accompaniment backing tracks
Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto was one of the final pieces he composed, in 1844. It is one of the best-loved concertos in the repertoire, with an exquisitely crafted violin solo part, inventive orchestration and innovative compositional techniques.
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.
All orchestral tuttis played in fullCADENZA (bar 298): 9 seconds of silence in piano part, where recording can be paused. To end the cadenza, there are 2 click beats to indicate full bars, then 4 further minim click-beats to resume the pulse of bar 299 (the last of these 4 minim click-beats corresponds with the piano chord in bar 299)
This practice version slows down the quicker sections of the 'performance' track above, by around 15-20%. It is included for free with that version if selected.
4 crotchet click-beats indicate pulse of Allegretto non troppo section - violin enters on 4th click-beat
