Nearly all pieces presented here may also be played on the violoncello or even on double bass/Kontrabass. Many pieces on my chamber music page (3 or more musicians) also contain bassoon parts. PDF scores are included if I think the copyrights are OK. You will find more information on copyrights and usage at the end of the page.
If you are interested to see the instrument I play then see here the a photo and some comments.
The MIDI, PDF and MP3 files that you can download here have been
prepared exclusively by me for training (practising) purpose.
There is no deep concept in the choice of the pieces: they exist as they are
as I needed them for a concrete playing context.
In most cases I have the copyrights for these files. You may use
them in non commercial contexts.
If you want to use them in an Internet context then please create a link
to this page - do not distribute (modified) copies.
The bibliographic references for the pieces on this page are here.
If ever possible - and if I didn't forget to arrange it this way - the MIDI and MP3 files have the solo voice on the right channel (or the left channel if your cables are not correctly connected) and the rest of the voices on the other channel. You can suppress the solo channel to a large degree if your sound producing device (amplifier) has a "balance" or "pan" control. Unfortunately many of the newer amplifiers (called "boom boxes" etc.) do no longer have a balance/pan knob.
A special hint for MacIntosh and Android users: these operating systems have no builtin MIDI players - when you play the MIDI files you hear nothing! I have started to convert some MIDI files to MP3 - but it will last some months until I have converted and uploaded them all. This situation is a shame for MacIntosh (Apple) and Android (Google): MP3 files can't be modified in the same degree as MIDI files. Normally they are two magnitudes bigger (factor 100 and more) than MIDI files.
