View Full Version : Yet Another "Orchestral Fantasy"

07-31-2004, 05:51 PM
Hi, folks! Been laboring on this (original) piece -- third in the series -- for about a week. There are three versions of it on my "Previews" page (the latest "published" version on the top, with the two earlier ones below it in reverse order) here: http://kevintweedy.net/Preview/MusicPreview.htm .

As usual, there are MP3 (at 160 K) and WMA (at 56 K) versions depending on your bandwidth capability.

Comments and suggestions gratefully accepted.

In keeping with my comfort level of GOS/Lite and GPO, about three-quarters of the strings in this piece are GOS/Lite and all the remaining instruments (including the three "ganged" solo violins) are GPO. A full listing of the parts is in the final (top) version info.

Peace ... KevinKauai

Thanks for your singular feedback, Wes! When I feel it is ready, I post some of my stuff on Broadjam.com (great "blind" reviews), Ampcast.com and AcidPlanet.com (the only free one of the bunch, which is the home to mainly dance-oriented "loopers"). Just under 24 hours of posting, this piece has captured the #1 slot on AcidPlanet in "Classical" ( http://www.acidplanet.com/music.asp?M=0&V=0&G=2&T=5193 ) and is the very first piece of mine to enter the overall "top 25" in all genres (#17 at this writing, here: http://www.acidplanet.com/music.asp?M=0&V=0&G=0&T=4115 ).

Feedback from this illustrious group always appreciated!

Superb Kevin......I knew you had it in you!!!:) :) What's in a name though.....Kevin's third symphony just hasn't got that ring to it.......:confused:

Thanks also for the other links......I wasn't aware that there was a whole world outside of GPO!!:)
