Sharing my midi sources for Classical and Romantic Piano

Share your original or public domain compositions here!
Request popular music with the suggestion form on the music store, not here!

All MIDI attachments must be one of the following:
  • Your own, original work submitted under some license that permits free private use (I recommend public domain or Creative Commons).
  • Adapted from works created prior to 1923. This goes for both the composition and arrangement. This means you cannot post MIDI versions of recent songs.

Hello,

I have been using Synthesia for years now, along the way discovering many midi sources to fuel my learning.

Keep in mind these are all classical - romantic - early modern composers.

First off I’d like to recommend www.petersmidi.com. This website features thousands of piano rolls converted into midi. You can watch and learn from Debussy playing his own works. The worlds most renowned pianists at the time playing great music. It costs money, but it was money well spent.

Next is my reliable source https://www.classicalarchives.com, just go to the midi section and there are thousands. All free!

http://www.kunstderfuge.com/ which I use when classicalarchives does not have something, 5 daily download limit like classicalarchives.

Finally a somewhat unique way of acquiring midi is https://www.piano-e-competition.com/default.asp
A competition where people play and present midis for judges. Every midi is archived for download (mistakes and all, however).

You could also try what I did, sheet music converted to midi, but that is unreliable most of the time. I’m hoping there is an AI developed transcriber some day.

Hope this helps anyone who like me, uses synthesia to learn the piano.
