    "The Marriage of Figaro" submitted by Colin Rowntree

    Colin Rowntree has just sent in his first GPO demo: The Overture for "Marriage of Figaro"

    http://www.garritan.com/mp3/cr-figaro-overture-GPO.mp3

    Colin did this after having GPO for only a few days. He used Overture to render this mockup.

    I am looking forward to hearing more of Colin's work.

    This is a great effort, especially after only a few days Colin. I really do think that, but I thought I ought to say it, anyway, just in case you're a member of the great Rowntree dynasty!
    It always surprises me how good GPO can sound straight out of a score system.
    Nice composition too.

    Hey pretty nice overall! The only thing I would like to hear is the timpani less dominant in the mix. Timps are a supportive instrument to give the orchestra a strong foundation and richness as well as accenting sections. That's the percussionist in me always complaining about the snare or the timps or bass drum. Back them off just a bit so they blend to give the orchestra strength.
    Yet, all in all nice.
