Notes: Browse our expertly crafted backing tracks for Assassins, the musical originally penned by Stephen Sondheim. The darkly humorous show spans several musical styles and many decades exploring the legacy of American assassinations, before ending in a showcase of John F. Kennedy’s most fateful day.

This complete set of Assassins backing tracks includes all instrumentals such as scene changes, underscores and playoffs and features popular numbers Ballad of Booth, El Capitan and many more.

Some of these tracks are available in our catalogue to purchase individually, presented in the original MTI stage score keys and following the tempos from the 2004 Broadway Revival cast recording. If you require changes to the original keys, please email before purchase for further advice.

A full additional set of tracks are provided with melody guides at no extra charge.
