Le Sacre du Printemps (intro)
Tackling a piece like this is not for the faint of heart! I painstakingly edited thousands of events until it started to sound right.
I was going for as real an interpretation as I could get for this. There were quite a number of problems to overcome, including sounds and techniques that simply weren\'t available in GPO, but which I tried my best to fake. (ww flutter-tongue scales, natural glissando harmonics on strings, solo violin trill, and an utterly insane alto flute part that the GPO samples just didn\'t seem to like)
Let me know what you all think, especially if you have a good familiarity with the piece. I think this is pretty close to a typical sounding orchestral recording of Le Sacre, with the exception of a few smallish hairs that could be split.
