My first attempt to start orchestrating again. I was playing a bunch of Scarlatti sonatas the other day at the piano and ran across this early one of his which I thought would be fun to transcribe to orchestra.
Nobody would orchestrate this way; it includes everything including the kitchen sink but I’m experimenting, combining different instruments, doubling instruments that aren’t usually doubled, going for unique combinations rather than a “beautiful” sounding piece of music.
That, and the fact I still have a long way to go to master all these different GUI interfaces of all these various companies. I find it quite a challenge because as soon as I start another library, I quickly forget all the intricacies of the one I just used……sigh……..it’s tough having an old brain!
But if you want to hear something to brighten your day, this will probably do the trick!
