Where can I find piano accompaniment to melodies?
Most piano books don't include accompaniment.
With accompaniment I am refer to eg violin or vocal accompaniment.
I am not only interested in solo playing. Piano books often miss this important thing. I am not sure why but I rarely see any of it in books.
It would be nice to find an accompaniment to BWV anh 114. I guess Bach or Petzold never wrote an accompaniment.

I am not sure what your question is. There are many, many works written for voice and piano, for choir and organ/piano accompaniment, works for solo instruments with accompaniment. All these have the solo parts plus the two-stave piano accompaniment part.

Here is just one example among thousands available, even free online: the Sonata for piano and violin by Cesar Franck: (click on the link)

Franck: Sonata

Besides the Bach you mentioned, give some examples of what you are looking for and I am sure that many of us will be able to find examples for you which include the piano accompaniment to the solo/choral works.

What Bruce said, there are all kinds of music written for piano+instrument or voice. What are some other examples of what you're wanting to play?

In the last year or so, I have started playing with a violinist, and we have found all kinds of sheet music with three staves, two staves for the piano and then she can play either scores written specifically for violin, or also flute or voice. (She sometimes will even transpose cello parts when we can't find anything else). I often get digital sheet music from SheetMusicPlus.com, but I have also used MusicNotes.com and also, for modern music, the artist's website (e.g., Brian Crain's music for piano and violin, found here https://www.briancrain.com/sheet-music/ ). If you like Einaudi, he has two collections out:The Violin Collection , and The Cello Collection . I have both of these as well and they are wonderful to play! (Although my violin friend prefers the Violin Collection, understandably, since she has to do less work to be able to play! smile

For non-classical music there's iReal or Band in a Box.

What I am thinking of is when you have a violinist playing the melody and you playing the accompaniment.
I want to play accompaniments to dances.
Both at concerts and when people dancing.

In that case, look up music composed by composers who wrote music for violin and piano and/or other instruments with piano. Invariably, you will find the score with the solo instrument part and the piano accompaniment along with it.

I don't understand what you mean by "accompaniments to dances," particularly in the context of "at concerts." Your original post was about accompaniments. If you are playing music "at concerts" would you not need solo music, not accompaniments? Dozens of composers have written "dance" music, many for piano: Schubert, Chopin, Brahms, Grieg, etc., etc.

Here are some examples.
I would like to learn how to accompany a person playing the melody. I want to play when people dancing but also at concerts. I really wanna accompany a person playing a melody. It should be too hard for you to understand what I am talking about.
Piano or keyboard in general is fampus for the ability to play accompaniments. I dont find much about this in books at all.
It is embarasing not to be able to accompany a minuet or a waltz at a dance.

Manne janne - could you clarify?

1. Do you want to learn how to create/improvise an accompaniment for live performance?
2. Or are you looking for sheet music that includes the accompaniment part?

You need to learn the basics of harmony, so that you can play accompaniments by ear.

There's a reason why folk songs (like the ones you linked) don't have published written-out accompaniments (though you might be able to find them arranged for keyboard if they are popular ones) - performers play them by ear generally. Many probably can't even read music.

You need to learn the basic harmonies: I, ii, IV, V, vi and with them you can basically play the accompaniments to almost any folk song (even Norwegian ones wink ). Even most pop songs.

These are a few YT tutorials that I found just by typing in "basic harmony". (Disclaimer: I don't have time to look through all of them, so I don't know how good they are):
