Q: Who is performing?
A: I don't know. I licensed this recording from Royalty-Free Classical Music (dot com) through Shockwave (dot com), and they don't say who their performers are.

Q: I'm having trouble following the rhythm.
A: I'm not surprised; it's highly syncopated. I've done a couple of versions with barlines in them. First, here's a bar-graph-only version with barlines:

Next, here's a version with both balls and barlines:

If you don't like the balls, here's a bar-graph-only without barlines:

And, here's the original (bar-graph with balls, but no barlines):

Q: Is there a way I could make the bar-graph scores myself?
A: The Music Animation Machine MIDI file player will generate this display; you can get the (Windows) software here:

There are lots of places on the web where you can get MIDI files; I usually go to the Classical Archives site first:
