The Royal Conservatory of Music: Violin Orchestral Excerpts
This progressive collection of standard Violin Orchestral Excerpts
is an excellent resource for assessment or audition preparation. With
the inclusion of both symphonic and chamber orchestra passages, students
from Levels 7 through Associate Diploma gain exposure to some of the
most compelling Orchestral Excerpts written for violin in a variety of genres and styles.
Please Note: This is a Piano Accompaniment Disc Only. It is intended to be used as a practice and performance tool. The String Part for this piece must be purchased separately. Study CDs were developed in order to provide every musician, regardless of his or her level, with an exciting and dependable chamber music experience. Because practicing without an accompaniment leaves the instrumentalist unprepared for lessons and rehearsals, PLAY IT solves the musical puzzle in the practice room, creating a dynamic, fun practice session. With up to 4 different tempi, PLAY IT is as effective as a metronome, and more pleasant to hear. Correct rhythm, steady tempi, a just-tuned grand piano: PLAY IT offers you a highly professional practice situation.
