    Yu Nakajima's First GPO Piece

    Yu Nakajima from Japan just sent in his first attempt with GPO.

    http://classicmp3.iis.ne.jp/fugag.mp3

    He writes "Just now I make first piece on GPO. If you have time, please listen. And if you advise me something I am so happy."

    Please listen and I will forward your comments to Yu.

    Hi YU,
    I liked the orchestration a lot. You really added a lot of color and variety. I liked how you built it up towards the end with the strings and then the brass. It almost reminded me of "switched on Bach", only sounded more orchestral.

    Thanks for Sharing!

    Excellent orchestration and the composition is superb. The only recommendations I could make are that the strings around a 1:40 could use some legato and also the repeated notes of the winds have that dreaded 'machine gun effect.' Also, the mix is very well seated, but the overall volume of the piece was lower than most. I don't know what else to say. This was a very well defined and listenable composition.

    Aha, one of the great fugues of Bach.

    The orchestration was very good and the mix was also very good.

    Looking forward to hear more, and then preferable by you.
    Sincerely,

    Yu Nakajima thanks you for your suggestions. He remade the Bach fuga.

    For a first work with GPO this is a fantastic job.

    As you can hear, he made some nice improvements from the previous version.
    How do you think the two version compare? Any further comments are welcome.
