In June 2010 the Smike backing tracks were remastered to very high digital quality.
They can now be hired from:-
Josef Weinberger Ltd., 12-14 Mortimer Street, London W1T 3JJ.
Tel no: 0207 580 2827
Or visit the Josef Weinberger website below
The backing track CD is also matched with a second CD containing all the vocal recordings
that correlate with the backing tracks, and which can be used for early rehearsals.
Recent productions have successfully combined the use of backing tracks with live
performances by conductor/keyboard player and other live musicians when available
