    Snowflight ~ Chappelle ~ COMPLETE!

    As of tonight, I finished up the last movement and am ready to premiere (digitally):

    Snowflight

    - Outskirts I ~ 2:09
    - Morning Life ~ 4:50
    - Outskirts II ~ 2:19
    - The Forest ~ 4:14
    - Outskirts III ~ 3:01
    (new)
    - Mourning Death ~ 3:27
    (new)
    - Soar ~ 4:08
    (new)
    ---
    All Movements (.rar) ~ 24:18

    All GPO except for strings, which are EWQL.

    I did my best to even out all the levels, which meant lowering some that had been normalized as they were too loud in comparison with one that reached the true loudest in the whole piece. If anyone might be able to help me master it better, I'd be greatly appreciative, but if not this's the best you'll get for now

    Please, enjoy! And give me some feedback if you're so inclined. Worked really hard on this, so it's very satisfying to finally be done.

    Leif, I just listened to the last three movements. Individually they were stunning. As a set they were phenomenal!

    Outskirts' rummaging, Mourning Death's simplicity, and Soar's elegance mesh so well!

    Soar is definately my favorite. The instrumentation you have there between piano and winds is beautiful.

    Finished works this size in this quality are hard to come by. Congratulations on such a tremendous accomplishment.

    As you know, Leif, I've been following this suite
    with interest as it developed.

    Having now had the great pleasure of hearing it
    in its entirety with all movements in context, may
    I say, simply:

    BRAVISSIMO!

    Consistently intelligent, innovative, and highly
    individual writing, with depth and evocative power
    that invariably turns the mind and heart -- none
    could mistake this for anyone but Leif Chappelle.

    Beautifully balanced, superbly composed, and
    brilliantly executed, Leif; this suite is a journey
    taken with utmost reward.

    With admiration,

    An amazing achievement, Leif!

    I thoroughly enjoyed every one of your arrangements.
    What I liked the most was the variety in tone and color.. distinct, yet stylistically constant.

    Mourning Death was a very nice contrast in subtlety.

    Bravo! on this entire movement.

    Thank you Reegs, it makes it even more worth it to complete something like this with such great compliments

    Jeff, thank you! I'm very glad that you perceived it as holding together stylistically. That was one of my main concerns
