    GPO Used in Peter Pan in Brescia, Italy

    GPO is being used for "Musica per i bimbi sperduti di Peter Pan" ("Music for the Disperse Children of Peter Pan), a theatrical performance and exhibition in a Medieval tower in Brescia, Italy. The show is about the adventures of Peter Pan and a group of the lost children and runs until 6 January 2005.

    Claudio Mandonico is a well known composer in Italy who has composed the score for the production entirely with GPO. For the performance he plays GPO directly from the Finale score using GPO Studio.

    Here are some excerpts from the show:

    http://www.garritan.com/mp3/PeterPan2.mp3
    http://www.garritan.com/mp3/PeterPan3.mp3

    These demos are rendered directly from Finale and shows how GPO can be used with notation.

    Claudio writes: "I think GPO is wonderfull and a fantastic chance to work with computer music. To thank you have included in this e-mail my first piece composed and arranged with GPO. I had short time (as ever) to work with it (people who wants music don't wait to much) so GPO saved me. I never see a library so flexibile (you always have good results with instruments combinations) and high simulation level. Thank you very much."

    Thank you Claudio for sharing your music with us and giving permission to post this.

    Very, very nice. First GPO in the musical in the Thanksgiving Day Parade now, this. I'm really beginning to get excited about writing a few musicals with GPO. :-)

    Wow! Truly phenomenal! This is a great GPO demo too--everything from piccolo to contrabassoon. Great work, Claudio! And inspiring that this could all be done on Finale: truly a vindication of Gary's concept for GPO Studio.

    Thumbs up Re: GPO Used in Peter Pan in Brescia, Italy

    I only had time to listen to the first snippet. From what I heard this must be one excellent production and shows perfectly that GPO is right for the task!
    Wonderful music and my compliments to Claudio Mandonico. Bravo!

    Claudio writes also great music for wind band and for mandolin orchestra. Brescia is a nice ancient town 90 km from Milan (where I live): if you come to Italy, don't miss Brescia (and Bergamo). Then you can catch a train and have a very pleasant weekend on the Lake of Garda, 25 km away from Brescia. I know some fine restaurants in Brescia. If you come to our country, give us a call... ;-)

    Truly great music! I hope Claudio gets the opportunity to perform this music with a live orchestra at some point. GPO holds up nicely, though!

    Is the audience hearing the GPO performance, or a real orchestra?
