Professor P plays arrangements by Paul De Bra

Professor P has completed a (first) CD with arrangements by Paul De Bra. 15 composers contributed to the 17 tracks on the CD so it is a varied collection of different styles, to illustrate the many possibilities an accordion ensemble offers. All the tracks on this CD are of compositions that are in the public domain (in most of the world) and are available under the Creative Commons Attributions license. So they can be freely downloaded, played and redistriibuted (provided credit is given where due). Send an email if you wish to receive a CD. You are of course free to burn your own copy from the files listed below.

The instrumentation of Professor P, as used on this CD consists of: 1) Bayan AKKO Super Deluxe, 2) Bugari 540/ARS/C, 3) Hohner Morino Artiste XS, 4) Pigini C39 Basson, 5) Accordina made by Marcel Dreux, and 6) some percussion including a djembé.

The CD contains the tracks listed below. The links here are to mp3 files (at high quality, but not exactly lossless compared to the real CD tracks). For some tracks a preliminary version has been posted to YouTube, but they are not always identical: for the CD some improvements were made, especially in the synchronization between different parts that are mixed.
