    Baroque Chamber Suite - by Thomas Penders

    Here is the 2nd movement of a work that Thomas Penders wrote earlier in the year and just realized with GPO:

    This is a baroque study (inspired by Bach's Brandenburg concertos.) Thomas used GPO in Sibelius (with GPO Studio).

    Excellent writing Thomas! I listened several times and enjoyed it each time. Thanks for sharing this.

    Amazing string writing! It's very enjoyable, and I'll most likely be listening to this numerous times. Thanks for sharing!

    BTW, where's your 1st movement? I'd love to hear it!

    There is so much going on in this piece. One certainly has to listen several times. This is an amazing piece of work! I too would love to hear the other movements.

    Kind Regards

    Nice writing indeed!

    I agree, there is allot going on here.

    I'm wondering if introducing other lead instruments would create more definable variation?

    Just a thought..

    This is excellent writing! The material and development are very much reminiscient of Bach. Did you build ensembles? Thanks for sharing this.

    I liked the composition - themes seem almost borrowed from Bach. But I would prefer smaller string ensembles. The strings sounded too heavy and masked the counterpoint.
