I wrote this tune years ago as a solo piano piece (I was a huge Ginastera fan back then). It\'s the first \"complete\" orchestration I\'ve done with GPO and I\'m pretty happy with the results! Especially the last 2 bars [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Take a listen. Comments welcome and appreciated.
Toccata - Pat Azzarello
Funny story here - I was at Berklee at the time. I had just gone to see David Rosenthal\'s senior recital (David later went on to play with Billy Joel, Cindy Lauper, Rainbow, etc.) and thought his solo piano piece as wimpy (I had a lot of angst at the time - it was actually pretty good... though more like Debussey than the rest of the music his band played at his recital). I went back to the rehearsal rooms and worked this piece out in a few hours. Years later I orchestrated it using GPO and breathed some new life into it...
Thanks Gary - GPO is great!
