Music teachers can't play everything, but CDs can. The PCCD-Rom CD-Pluscore series uses Deutsche Grammophon recordings by some of the world's most distinguished musicians to provide masterclasses in listening, editing and practising. You can hear individual parts and voices separately; prepare a personalised edition by altering slurs, dynamics and tempi; follow a score at your own speed and print it in varying formats; play or sing a solo part live hile a MIDI file provides the accompaniment; and read analytical and biographical notes. Get Anne-Sophie Mutter and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau to join the school staff.
CD-Pluscore is available in record shops, price up to pound;15.99. For a free information folder and sample CD, write to CD-Pluscore Offer, DG, Universal Classics, 22 St Peter's Square, London W6 9NW. Website: www.universalclassics.com
