Topic: Elgar demos

  1. #1

    Elgar demos

    Still investigating the expressive capabilities of GPO.

    These are from Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations, a collection of fourteen variations on an original theme, composed 1898-1899. Most of the variations are musical portraits, one for each of several of Elgar's close friends.

    As always, these are done with GPO v1.2 & Overture v3.6.0:

    Edward Elgar, Enigma Variations, Theme, 1:52, 2.6Mb

    Edward Elgar, Enigma Variations, Variation No. 9 "Nimrod", 3:46, 5.3Mb

    Thumbs up Re: Elgar demos

    Very nicely done.

    Very nice. Dynamics on Nimrod seem to be used more efficiently than on the first piece (maybe too much nuanced for my taste). In any case, you have done a bright work.

    Gorgeous, Darwin.

    I too like the dynamics of the second piece, but then again it is a separate work.
    You have made some beautiful music here that is certainly worthy of the demo page!

    Simply beautiful! Both pieces are wonderful.
    I've registered in the forum and am reading and listening to all the wonderful music!
    My GPO arrives tomorrow!
    I'm sure you will all hear from me shortly.

    Thanks for your works

    Did "Nimrod" mean the same thing in Elgar's day as today? From the music I doubt it.

    Nicely done, both the original theme and the variation. I could very easily forget I'm listening not listening to live musicians.

    Nice mockup, DarwinKopp - the strings sound fabulous, and I think the dynamics on the first mockup were very well done too for the setting.

    Wow! Loved it. Would you mind sharing the midi files with the forum? It would be great to see the orchestration in that format. Regardless, you truly did a super job. What a bargain is GPO.
