    Karg-Elert: PTL with Drums and Cymbals

    Over 20 years ago, I got this score for organ, and I've always wanted to orchestrate it for Organ and Orchestra(!)

    Now, since I'm getting back in the swing of things, relearning orchestration tricks and having TONS of fun, I had a go at it last night and today, and here's the result:

    (Sigfrid Karg-Elert, Praise the Lord With Drums and Cymbals)

    2 Fl, 2 Ob, French horn, 3 tpt, 2 tbn, tuba, percussion, timp, strings, organ.

    All done in Finale 2006 + GPO full, post-production and impulse reverb added in Sound Forge.

    Enjoy!

    Quite grand, Jonathan!

    Fine job on the orchestration, very effective... and still another piece I do not believe I have heard previously.

    We keep bringing you obscure gems... it's what we do!

    Grand... yes...

    It is marked "Pomposo e Festivo", and I think this qualifies as that!

    Thanks, my friend!

    Keep 'em coming, Jonathan!

    There's an enormous amount of unknown music out there that richly deserves to be heard.

    And I suspect Orwig has copies of *all* of it...

    Superb!
    Jonathon, this was shear pleasure. Your realization is very convincing and the interpretation is first rate. Your posts are becoming a treasure trove of little known master pieces.

    Thanks, Bill!

    I'm happy to help y'all learn about unfamiliar music... I certainly have fun exploring it myself, and it seems a shame to not share my discoveries!

    Great rendition - excellent job!

    My group recorded this piece in 1994 - here is an excerpt of the live performance for comparison:

    Dallas Wind Symphony - Praise the Lord with Drums and Cymbals

    Such wonderful grand music... crank up them speakers!

    Thanks for the nice words and the comparison link, David!

    I think I have that recording somewhere on CD... still one of my favorites!
