This is the first time I've attempted to do a 'mockup' of something with GPO. I did this mainly to learn some techniques. This is the first movement of one of my favorite Bach Concertos BWV1052. It's not perfect, but I had a lot of fun doing it. It's done in Sibelius and you're welcome to make any suggestions.
You certainly have a fell for Bach. This is excellent. the harpsichord is fantastic.
This is very difficult to pull off in notation. To impart humaness is hard with notation and you've done admirable with the tools. Often what some do is to export and import the MIDI file into a sequencer and do some tweaking.
Thanks Garry for the kind words. I realize fully the limitations of notation software and this can most certainly sound much much better in a sequencer, but I wanted to experiment within notation. It's quite fun really .
To be honest, I had to listen several times to appreciate the strong dynamics in your interpretation. Now I am convinced. The rendering must have been a tough job, but the result is excellent. It shows great love for Bach's music. Bravo. Thanks for posting it.
Thanks David and Gerard for the encouragement . I was pretty consumed by this piece for quite a while. That's the reason for this 'mockup'. One soon loses all objectivity. I picked up one wrong note though towards the end. Strange how these things get past you when listening to something over and over again. There are still a number of things one can do to make it better in notation software, like the strong attacks, but I take it one step at a time.
By the way, the material of this Concerto's first movement is also part of Bach's Cantata BWV146, if anyone wants to give it a listen. It's simply beautiful. Bach later worked it into a Concerto for Harpsichord, and if I'm not mistaken, also a Concerto for Violin (although I haven't heard it).
