 RE: Accompaniments

I ordered accompaniments for the Mozart Clarinet Concerto and Jeanjean Arabesques for my son. They are of excellent quality - played on a nice piano, good technique, etc. The advantage of these CDs is that you don't have the problems that we have experienced with live accompanists - slowing down, wrong notes, losing their places. But this is related to their disadvantage. With a live accompanist, you can agree to specific interpretations for a particular performance, rubato, etc.

We recently used the CD at a party. Without it, my son would have played something unaccompanied. With it he played the first movement of the Mozart clarinet concerto. We also had a violinist at the party who played with an accompanist who is a graduate student at Peabody. There is no question that playing with this accompanist would be better than playing with any CD. But is this accompanist available to play with high school kids? NO. I hope that this answers your question.
