    "A String Thing" (mostly)

    String Lovers,

    'ave a go at my "A String Thing" if you wish.

    It is all-GPO. I doubled the Gagliano solo violin with the first violins to give the melodic line some...oops, I almost said "balls". You can't exactly "hear" the Gagliano but there is a big difference if I remove it.

    Violins 1 Sus + Short
    Violins 2 Sus + Short
    Violas Sus + Short
    Cellos Sus + Short
    Basses Sus + Short
    Violin Gagliano KS Solo
    Horn 1 Solo Ag

    Regards,

    Larry A.

    Hi, Larry.

    I like the writing alot... and the instrumental mix is good.

    I would add some dynamics more to the individual parts, so some come out more than others here and there, then to the overall orchestra. Sort of ebb and tide stuff... know what I mean...?

    Frank, you old steak-and-kidney-pie eater, where have you been?
    I thought that maybe you had tried to swim the English channel and didn't make it.

    Thanks for listening.

    My best,

    Nice composition there Larry! My personal preference would be to slow the tempo just a bit. I think it might flow better. Whaddayathink?

    I will give it a try at a slower tempo and see what happens.

    Thanks for listening.

    Brass P.,

    I just listened to it at a slower tempo and all of the "life" was gone.

    I thank you, however, for your suggestion. I appreciate the fact that you took the time to listen.

    My best,

    A Brilliant piece, Larry. The strings sound phenomenal. This should be used on the demo pages to show off the GPO strings!

    Excellent!
