    Dan Dean\'s Solo Strings Demo - what is that?

    The solo strings demo that I believe is on the Gigasampler site (just called Dan Dean solo strings.mp3)-- what piece of music is that? That\'s the Fawlty Towers theme, right? Who wrote that? I love it.

    A simple search for \'Fawlty Towers\' on IMDB would probably give you a clue...

    The DDSS demo is an arrangement of the \"Fawlty Towers\" theme...one of my favorite programs. I happened to have one of the VHS tapes, so I listened to it and derived a demo that used all of the features of the Solo Strings in 30 seconds or so. I, unfortunately, do not know who the original composer is.

    Thanks,
    DD

    From the Fawlty Towers FAQ:

    \"Public Television\'s Greatest
    Hits\" (1990) BMC Classics/RCA Victor, 60470-2-RC (U.S.) It says
    \"Fawlty Towers\" by Dennis Wilson, arranged by Byron Olson.

    BTW Dan, any ETA on the Solo Brass? I\'m waiting with bated breath!

    Thanks gentleman. I found some Fawlty sites after posting here, and it seems that Dennis Wilson composed the theme for the show. Its such a sweet tune and it\'s a great contrast with the hilarious, manic show.

    And Dan, adapting that tune hit my sweet spot: I just ordered Solo Strings today!
