Interesting. When I was in undergrad., the pianist was provided by the
department; sometimes students, sometimes faculty -- I assume depending on
the complexity of the piano music. My junior recital, the head of the
theory department accompanied me. My senior recital, I had the very good
luck to have the head of the keyboard department. Both were brilliant
pianists. (I didn't fare as well during freshman & sophomore year. I had
student accompanists who were adequate, but not great.) I know one student
who played the Mozart quintet. The strings received credit for their work
but no money -- and they worked hard, particularly since they normally
played in the orchestra and not in small ensembles together.

Is it now common practice for the recitalist to pay for the accompanist? My
experience has been a long time ago, you realize.<g>
