    A Tribute to Boccherini

    This started off as a tribute to Boccherini after I listened to a number ot his string quintets. ( In particular, I wanted to imitate the rhythm of the final movement of his String Quintet in G (G351) However, I don\'t think this piece sounds anything like any of Boccherini\'s quintets. In fact, this is a quartet (string trio and piano).

    Let me know what you think. I welcome all your comments.

    This piece sounds very realistic.

    Hi Marko

    Another great and original piece full of interesting twists and turns [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    There\'s also a very human looseness evident which sounds very real. I wish I could get my music to breathe as much as this.

    One very small thing, is there a slightly suspect note around 50 secs? (I\'m going for pickiest comment of the year here!)

    Those sound like real violins to me too.

    I hear that bad note Marsdy hears too. Didn\'t hear it the first time but I went back to listen to those quick sextuplet phrases and heard it then.

    If that\'s a library, color me impressed [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Gary,

    Most of the sounds are from the Kirk Hunter Solo Strings library. I used Dan Dean pizzicato for the violin and viola only. The rest is KHSS.


    Dana,

    As much as I tried to imitate Boccherini the modernism simply creeps in.

    Marsdy and Michael,

    You are correct about those notes. I looked in the midi file and there are some extra unintended notes in the viola track right at that point. Very good ears!


    Real violins! I wish I could afford real violins. Then I would have to afford real violin players!

    Thanks for listening!

    Very nice piece with a really cool heavy metal riff starting about 0:56 [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    The strings are maybe the most realistic solostrings I\'ve heard in mock ups.

    Cool! Actually, much of it does remind me of the Boccherini quintets. But, I especially like the the sections where it seems to get a bit more modern (like at 1:40 and 2:15), they make a nice contrast.

    When I heard the piece I even doubted if it was sampled or real!
