    Smile Pizzicato Margherita

    Hi Folks,

    Sorry I've not posted for quite a while - I've been busy with too many other things.

    I recently set myself the task of writing a set of pieces each one focusing on a different set of sounds from GPO.

    The first one I finished is called "Pizzicato Magherita", and you've guessed it - it uses pizzicato strings.

    The only problem I had was that with all those lovely GPO sounds sat In my computer I couldn't help adding some woodwind and percussion sounds: Pizzictao Margherita - Full

    By the way - "Play Song" is a wma file, "Download" is and Mp3

    Let me know which one you prefer.

    P.S. Both of these tracks seem quiet. Has anyone got any suggestions for using compression/limiting with classical music - I've always stayed clear so I don't ruin the sound by mistake.

    Nice work!

    I think your full version is much stronger!

    Great usage of the Pizzicato.
    This was a fun light melody!

    Very, very Nice!

    As for deleting your duplicate post?.. Can't help you there.
    But I've witnessed the unfortunate event of "marked for deletion" posts being hurled into 5th parallel discussion dimensions.!
    best of luck with that..

    I've listened to both, Mark.

    The full version, I agree with Jeff, is much stronger and
    far more interesting.

    This is first-rate writing, and excellent rendering.

    But!

    There is one very serious problem.

    I want more, Mark. I want more!

    Fine work! Please -- consider taking this further,
    Mark.

    Mark,

    This is really fine stuff, well written and equally well rendered. Look forward to hearing future works.

    Musomark:

    Great little piece and well produced by GPO. Everything is very clear and well balanced and the melody is "fanciful." As some others have commented, I really enjoyed the Full version the most as the interplay of instruments created more musical interest.

    Awaiting more from your musical presence.

    BRAVO.

    Thanks for listening Rhap2 and thanks for the positive comments.

    The Summer is the slowest time for my day job, so I hope to be able to post a lot more tracks over the next couple of months.
