Classical midi files and recordings on the web

Warning: MIDI files can sound very different depending on what sound card or synthesiser you have; also, many of these files are computer-generated and very unmusical! MIDI is a good way to get a rough impression of what a piece is like, but if you download a MIDI of a piano piece and then learn to play the piece yourself, you should expect your version to sound much better.

Some of the mp3s on these sites are rather good...
