The trend in publishing has been to drop the piano accompaniment part and only include an audio download accompaniment – which, sadly, does not encourage ensemble playing! This new series from Hal Leonard gives the players lots of options: a complete piano accompany part or audio accompaniments. Finally! The other good news is that these have been edited to include dynamics, articulation, phrasing, bowing suggestions, etc making them appropriate for lessons or performances. There are more volumes in the pipeline including some Sondheim and for lots of different instruments.
