Mendelssohn VC "music minus one"?
Can anyone suggest a good accompaniment track for the Mendelssohn VC? It's going to be a while before I can play this with a real, live pianist...
In the years before CDs, I used the Music Minus One vinyl disk.
Yes-- I got a CD of the Mendelssohn from Presto Music, UK; The label is Soloist in Concert, HLCD 9101. It has the complete version, and the orchestral accompaniment only. Go to
The Music Minus One CD (or MP3 tracks), which I think are also available through the Cadenza app, the absolutely best way to play a concerto with virtual accompaniment.
The myPianist app is quite impressive. My son recently recorded the Mendelssohn violin concerto for an audition using the app and the judges all commented on how well the app followed throughout the entire concerto. He was able to change tempi, add rubato, and take the last movement at a quick pace. There are also many great practice features built into the app. This forum discussed the app in detail back in September https://www.violinist.com/discussion/thread.cfm?page=4602
Thanks everybody. Great suggestions! I'll report back what I end up trying.
