Dowani 3 Tempi Play Along is an effective and time-tested method of practicing that offers more than conventional play-long editions. Dowani 3 Tempi Play Along enables you to learn a work systematically and with accompaniment at different tempi.

The first thing you hear on the CD is the concert version in a first-class recording with solo instrument and orchestral, continuo, or piano accompaniment. Then the piano or harpsichord accompaniment follows in slow and medium tempo for practice purposes with the solo instrument heard softly in the background at a slow tempo.

Finally, you can play at the original tempo to the accompaniment of an orchestra, piano, or basso continuo. All versions appearing on the CD were recorded live by renowned soloists, accompanists, and orchestras. There are no synthesised sounds in a Dowani edition!

    These full-size Dowani editions are a lot better to play from than the small-format ones, so can be recommended for that reason. The main problem with this one is that although this Concerto is in D minor, the score has been written without a key signature, so all...

    the b-flats are marked as accidentals, and b-naturals left unmarked. This makes it distinctly confusing to play. The full-speed CD accompaniment is good - full orchestra with one solo violin on each left/right channel so you can use your balance to control to select which one you want to drop out. The slow and medium speeds are less good though as these just have a piano version of the orchestra, with neither solo part, so difficult for some passages.
