MP3 accompaniments for Suzuki pieces
Hi all - as I have worked my way through the early Suzuki books, I have really enjoyed practicing with the MP3 accompaniment files available at this link: https://www.imtex.info/istex/mediathek/
However, now that I have reached Bach Double, it appears that it is only available as a Book+CD. I am very happy to pay money for the audio files, but I really prefer an MP3 download vs CD. Does anyone know of any comparable MP3 that can be purchased for download vs purchasing a physical CD?
Kerstin Wartberg is the author of the MP3s I have been using. I really love them and hope I can find something similar for my current piece! (as I mentioned, I am not looking for a free download...I am willing to pay for it but just prefer MP3 to CD.)
There are apps that can convert YouTube videos to MP3. Anything on YouTube that you like?
There appears to be to be an accompaniment for violin 1 on Cadenza, which is an app,I discovered from another thread. Apparently only for Apple devices, but fun if you can use it, as it is interactive, and Bach is free
Bach may be free but recordings are not -- there are separate copyrights these days, stretching back to the 1950s in the U.S. where there is a copyright in the music itself (Bach is definitely public domain) and also a copyright in the sound of the recording itself (recordings made since sometime in the 1950s are protected by that sound copyright so they are not free to make mp3 files of to distribute to the public.)
In cadenza you download the music you select, only onto the app, and you play along with it.
Another recommendation for Cadenza -- they have a lot of the Suzuki pieces. Some of the other programs out there have even more.
Thanks for the suggestions! I will try Cadenza!
