Yes....Saint-Saëns
For piano accompaniment, just strip the solo from the MIDI file.

I don't play much, hardly any, classical music. I just play hymns cuz I'm the emergency-quick-we-need-a-pianist at church. Our pianist has been out of state for several weeks now and her health is really bad so I've been the pianist at church for a while now and I really need to be able to play almost every hymn.

If you don't play much classical music, what brought you to VSM?

Good question Grandpa. I did a search for sheet music cuz I wanted Fur Elise and got this site and decided to join.
Glorfindel, no I don't listen to classical. Just conservative Christian.

OK, You pried it out of me.
I came to VSM looking for wedding music for a wedding I played for in August.
I also found Christmas music and "The Swan".
I downloaded Meditation by Massenet

Hey, Y.
Have you tried "The Swan"
I believe that VSM has it for viola.
It's easy to play it takes some focus to really sound good.



Easy for you to play. It was hard for me! That was my first real introduction to changing postions. My teacher actually sat down with me and worked through the position changes with me. It's really good practice for getting the intonation right.

(Sorry, remember I've been playing < 10 months (on violin anyway))
