Classical Background Music

classical background musicIn addition to the original series of background tracks, I will start a small collection of classical music tracks featuring student performers. You may use these for free as background music for non-commercial videos and other non-commercial multimedia-projects; simply add the song name, the name of the composer, the name of the performer and the address of this website (longzijun.wordpress.com) in the credits and/or video description).

The music composition is in the public domain in most countries, including America (for more information about copyright, public domain and classical music see longzijun.wordpress.com/2012/01/18/classical-music-public-domain-and-copyright/).
Unfortunately, unscrupulous companies (like GoDigital MG) have been attempting to make all sorts of false copyright claims on classical music compositions, so you may find a Content ID match when uploading your video to YouTube. However, the rights to this music composition are in the public domain and the performance is completely original.

This is Song No. 25 in the Background Music series. Although it would normally be classified as a kind of new-age instrumental, it does have classical influences, so I have also included it in this section.
