Video 1 of 3.

The Brandenburg Concertos 1 and 2.
Transcribed on the CPC by Rob Baxter in 1987.

I would highly recommend using 4K Video Downloader (easy to use/takes minutes) to strip the audio to MP3 so that you can play it on other devices - MP3 file size is 19.1MB.

A little ragtime music for the weekend.
You might be familiar with this piece of music as the theme for the movie "The Sting".

Music starts at 2.53 and finishes at 7:57

From the Rob Baxter music disc 5.

I know I tried this application once back in the day, but I don't remember much from it. I'm sure I concluded it was too complicated for me, but I must have heard "The Entertainer" at the time.  :)

The one thing our modern CPC tracks are missing nowadays, is that oldschool feel. The simplicity... It's very cosy.
