Please help to keep this site alive

My name is Victor Gomersall.  BestClassicalTunes.com is my web-site. I started coding the predecessor to this site in 2002 when it was a Windows App. In 2007 I made it into the beginnings of this website, but with relatively few tunes. I have steadily added more music and more features to the site in the 10 years since then.

Sadly, in 2015 I was diagnosed with MND (Motor Neuron Disease - ALS). So I will not be able to continue this work for much longer, and my web-site will die with me.

I am hoping to find a person, a group of people, or an institution willing to take over the maintenance and enhancement of BestClassicalTunes.com for the benefit of the musical community. They would need both good musical knowledge, and some website coding skills.

I was planning to complete the sets of Beethoven piano sonatas and Chopin works, and to add a great deal more beautiful music. For each piece of music, there is an entry in the database, an image of the musical notation for each theme, and the first 10 notes of each theme, - used by the dictionary of musical themes. Optionally, there can be an MP3 file of a live recording, a midi file, and a PDF file of the score or sheet music.

My site is non-commercial and contains no advertising. As well as a valuable resource for music teachers and music students,  it aims to be a source of pleasure for music-lovers everywhere.

If you are interested, or know somebody or some institution that might be, please get in touch with me through my contacts form.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
