Does anyone know if any CD’s exist that have recorded only the violin parts of concertos?

Do you mean the first and second violin parts to the orchestra “by themselves”—or do you mean the solo part without the orchestral part (neither as an orchestra nor as reduced to piano accompaniment)?

I mean the solo part without any accompaniment, either orchestral or piano reduction.

Which concertos are you asking about? Seitz, Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart?

There are different solutions to your problem depending on which one you need.

Can you be more specific? Why do you find the commercial recordings unusable?

I’m asking on behalf of another teacher, so I’m not sure. I assumed she had a student who perhaps wanted to play along with just the solo part. Let me ask her.

My teacher friend is looking for Mozart Concerto No. 3. She said her student has a hard time hearing the solo part against the orchestra.

Any ideas?

I was originally thinking that Music Minus One might be your solution, since I had a recollection that some of those recordings had been done “split track”, so that a person could turn to one track and get only soloist, or to the other and get only orchestra.

However after looking at the description on the current MMO website it seems that they have changed (or else I was thinking of some other company). They now advertise selling a CD with one “full” recording and one recording of just the orchestra.
