    Mozart's Horn Concerto in D - by Valhalx

    Valhalx just sent in this mp3 of Mozart's Horn Concerto in D, K-412.

    http://www.beethovenseroica.com/Pg5_...3/moz_horn.mp3

    Valhalx just got GPO a couple of weeks ago. This is an excellent first rendition. He is a long time user of Overture.

    Excellent work Valhalx. Thanks for sending this link and shating it with us. Looking forward to hearing more of your work.

    Mozart was good wasn't he!!

    I'm a huge fan of Mozart horn concertos and Valhalx has done this justice. Surprisingly good if he didn't tweak within a piano roll. This must have been a huge amount of work, especially if Val didn't start with a MIDI file.

    GPO has always sounded very good with this era of music...... to my ears.

    Thanks, this was a real pleasure.

    Thanks. I was hooked on Mozart's horn concertos the first time heard one. And yes, there is some piano roll tweeking.

    Very nice - wish I could get my sounds to be that good, especially the strings.

    Wow... nice, nice job on this, Valhalx! Very well done!

    Would someone explain what "piano roll tweaking" is, please -- your neighborhood newcomer to the art (me) is unfamiliar with the term... lol.

    Thanks to all. It was a lot of fun. I have a question. I'm still unable to post a link on this board. I type the link, highlight it, click the globe and chain, retype it in the pop-up but when I click submit it says I must remove the URL. I noticed on the bottom of the page it says I don't have permission to post attachments. Could this be it?

    The Piano Roll is a feature of Overture that allows fine adjustments to phrasing and dynamics and other parameters..

    this sounds very good...a fine mozart orchestral simulation...however (i know i might get some heat for this), i love mozart but i think his horn concertos are his most uninspired works...they're so formulaic and an utter bore (that's not an animal - boar udder?? ) to hear in concert...probably if the horn wasn't so limited at the time he would have had better results...valhalx, thanks for posting this, nonetheless...i look forward to more!

    Thanks for the input and I value your opinion. I love classical music but I too have a few dislikes. Perhaps the horn concertos were more exciting at their first performances since they were taylor made for a horn virtusoso that Mozart had met.
