In the case of accompanied works, music is included for a single principal instrument featured with a keyboard instrument usually constrained to a subordinate role throughout the composition, for example, a sonata for violin with piano accompaniment, a concerto for violin with the orchestral accompaniment condensed and arranged for piano, or-similarly-a piano concerto with the orchestral accompaniment condensed and arranged for second piano.
