Bach Concerto for 2 violins - individual audio files of solo parts?

October 21, 2019, 9:22 AM · Hi everyone,
Two of my students are playing the Concerto for 2 violins by Bach. They have a two weeks vacation now. I've been thinking it would be of great help for them to be able to practice with each other's part, without the orchestral part.
Do you know of any recordings of the solo parts only?
If I can't find it, I'll have to record it myself :-)
Thanks in advance for your help!
Sophie

My students are most probably like yours :-)
I found something interesting on this YouTube channel : CadenzaStringsNC.
He offers 3 videos for each solo part : slow practice tempo / medium speed / final tempo.
I just sent the link to the young fellows... we'll see what it sounds like in 2 weeks !
