Dan's Classical Music Page

Midi files of some of the most beautiful music in the world!

Featured music is the Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa            seasonal

Although the music from Disney is not exactly classical, it can be argued that the beauty of much of their music belongs in a classical collection. So I have added some selections below!

A photograph of probably the most famous violin maker of all time. Antonio Stradivarius built his world famous violins in Cremona, Italy.
