    A little Gypsy music

    Here is Brahms Hungarian Dance No 1. I would like to thank Joseph Burrell for assisting me with a technical problem that was preventing this piece from being completed.

    Hi Bill

    In my opinion, this is the most convincing mockup you've done. This is exquisite. What kind of reverb did you use in this? It sounds fantastic.

    Kind Regards

    Thanks Louis. For verb I used Ambience set at Ballroom One and tweeked the wet slider to -5.1 db. In bars 1 through 24, the first occurance of the main theme, I mixed KS strings and lush strings at equal modulation levels. To articulate the fast passages I mixed KS and short bows.

    Ailteoir, Thank you very much. Now I win the bet. My girl friend, who's not into classical music, said the opening didn't sound right.

    Thumbs up Re: A little Gypsy music

    fantastic work, no doubt.

    the only little thing wrong is the excessive "jamming" of final high tunes of strings, a little synthy. But the articulation of the beginning is absolutely good, very, very well done.

    Congratulations,

    Fabio.

    Thanks Fabio. You're right about the strings. I tried every thing to tame those notes and still be able to hear them. Maybe I'll try some more adjustments.

    Great work, I particularly liked the constant tempo changes.It really helps generate that "Gypsy Passion" feeling.

    Thanks. What is gypsy without passion? Gilles Apap and The Transylvanian Mountain Boys have some wonderful recordings of Hungarian/Gypsy music.

    Wow -- truly impressive! This is top-drawer, Valhalx. And as a longtime student of Brahms, may I likewise compliment you on the musicality of your interpretation of the piece -- often a difficult composition to perform well and with passion, even with a live orchestra.
