    Adagio For Strings Barber and DPDAN

    I have had this Telarc CD for many years and it has the St. Louis Symphony performing some beautiful stuff. I have wanted to do my own Garritan rendition since I bought GPO back in April of 2004.

    It is all GOS except for one of GPO's violins, and a few individual cellos for sweetening spots. I did this by ear from listening to the CD, and my ears are tired Styxx!


    Altiveb 5 is gorgeous!

    Unlike Roberto, I listened at 33 1/3 instead of 78! This is great Dan...your ears are a LOT better than mine...I would need a score and a couple of years to get close!.

    Isn't GOS supposed to be included in GPOA? Can't wait!

    Dan,

    I think I've gone to Adagio heaven! This is just beautiful and I found myself getting lost in it.

    Dan, you keep outdoing yourself (and don't stop!)

    Thanks for posting this. Time to listen another dozen times

    Dan,

    As usual, excelent job! But I do hear what you mean about velocities - some attacks are too uniform. Now I say this without having the patience to
    really see to this in my own work Great work with dynamic shaping. This piece has always needed a very keen hold on the cresc/dim, and can be a had task for the conductor.

    Interesting to hear it in this format. It had been a long time since I had listened to it - thanks for bringing it back!

    This sounds great as usual Your mixing capabilities with samples is astounding, and to have the patience to sit down and dictate by ear and then sequence it is something I would lack the patience to do.

    I have not listened to this piece in ages, thanks. Shows that simplicity in harmony/melody can still be effective and evocative(outside of the movie influence) considering the period it was written in(I believe late 50s or early?).

    Dan:

    AWESOME, absolutely beautifully done. Your mixing talents never cease to amaze me and provide increased motivation to make my GPO music sound as professional as yours does.

    Thanks for another "Bar Raiser." (GOS sounds fantastic.)
