Piano accompaniment backing tracks
|Practice version (optional)|
Flight of the Bumble Bee is just a short orchestral interlude in Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, but the 90-second piece has taken on a life of its own, mostly as a showpiece demonstration of virtuosity. It consists of a perpetual string of semiquavers, often played at breakneck speed! This version is for flute and piano in A minor, and you can purchase and download the piano part to play along to, recorded by a professional accompanist.
