    "Solo Mello Cello" (with piano accompaniment)

    Music Folks,

    I have added a piano accompaniment to my "Solo Mello Cello" which was originally written for cello only.

    This features the GPO Solo Cello KS and the GPO Steinway Piano.

    You can make the call as to whether this is an improvement over the original composition.

    Regards,

    Larry A.

    Well, I'm not sure if I could call it "better" or "worse" . . . but the piano definitely gives it a new sound . . . like a beautiful woman who just put on a pretty hat

    I love the interplay and counterpoint between the cello and piano. They truly go well together. Man, I wish I could see this performed by Yo-Yo Ma and Marvin Hamlish . . . (couldn't think of any other famous living piano players off the top of my head ). Great work!

    Thank you, Sean Patrick.

    "...a chick who just put on a pretty hat." You shore do talk purty.

    I'm kidding, of course. I really appreciate your kind words.

    My best to you,

    Hi Larry,

    I liked this, I think its the first time I heard one of your piece having a cello as first like that. The 'error' are nicely added can I ask in what you do your music? Notation program?

    Bon jour, Saldor,

    Thank you for your comments.

    I sequence my music with Sonar 3. I also use Kontakt 2 as the sample player within Sonar 3.

    Nice works, Larry...
    The piano accompaniment is well done IMO. How long did take you, would you share more "in the process"? Just kidding, Never mind!

    If you are asking how long did it require for me to write the entire piece...the answer is about two hours. I spent about thirty minutes writing the piano accompaniment after I finished the cello part.

    Thanks for listening.

    My best,

    Hi Larry,
    Good work as usual. I like the panning. Sounds like you'e sitting at a concert, piano to the left, cello slightly right. I think the accompaniment adds a lot to the music.
