Here is a new demo with the Stradivari Solo Violin. http://www.garritan.com/Strad/Hornpipe.mp3 This old sailor's song is believed to have been written in the 1700's. The melody became associated with the nautical hornpipe dance and it entered popular repertoire and became fairly widely known (and later became the theme song for the cartoon character, Popeye the Sailorman). Thanks Robert Davis for realizing this timeless classic. Enjoy! Gary Garritan
Very cool but this as with some of the other fast tempo violin demos I feel it is too perfect. What would be great to hear is some bow noise or even just nearly hitting the pitch would make it sound even more realistic.
