    Talking Cascadas (waterfalls) now with Strad...

    Hello, this is my first post of a GPO recording.
    This piece is called "CASCADAS", waterfalls in english, is a work for the University here in Argentina, in the class of Composition II, which is strongly oriented to contemporary music, in fact...i don´t how to say this...but, the "Director of the class" or the "most important man" in all the Composition classes is Mariano Etkin, maybe you know him, maybe you don´t.
    Well the work was to make a piece for more than 5 instruments and to be longer than 5 minutes.
    I choose: (individual instruments, not ensambles)
    Flute
    Clarinet in Bb
    Bassoon
    French Horn
    Triangle
    Two Cymbals (suspended and a pair of cymbals)
    Snare drum
    Gran Cassa
    Violin I & II
    Viola
    Violoncello
    Doublebass

    Well, i use garritan in all the instruments and Stradivari in the first Violin. Thnx buddy...Now is sounding better, and the mix, i think is different. I hope you like this new version.

    PD:I got a 10 in this work!!!! thanks garritan!
    PD1:Later i will post a weberian micropiece, where i got a 9.

    A fascinating event-driven composition, Julian -- very well done and a pleasure to listen to.

    (I believe I remember Etkin from lectures at McGill in Montreal back in the 1970's?)

    Excellent work! A ten, most certainly.

    My best,

    Yes! I can see why your instructor gave you a ten! Nice job! Great use of orchestration and use of dynamic breadth. Also, nicely sequenced!

    Julianrojo,

    Well that was certainly far from a Brahams symphony. But this brings up my point that the writing is very creative. Sometimes when we write pieces like this it is easy to steer away from what a real orchestra can do and what it would sound like. You have mastered both of these aspects! Very realistic sounding.

    Congratulations.

    Hats off gentlemen a "Genius".

    A very interesting piece Julian. I particularly liked the long melodic strands in your central section, skillfully done. This a very shimmering soundworld, and one I enjoyed swimming in.
    Congrats on the 10.
    regards Joe

    Wow! thanx to all your replies, i´m very happy that you find interesting my works. Later i will post the micropiece. Only 1:14 of running time.
    And maybe in a couple of weeks a version of Cascadas with the stradivari violin. I hope my friend who lives in Buenos Aires can render the violin parts.
    Again, Thx a lot.

    Julianrojo,

    I really liked this piece. I often think music, in its simplest definition, if tension and release. you have done a wonderful job with that in this composition. The redering is very good as well. Congrats on the good grades!

    Regards,

    Tim

    Extremely interesting! Wonderful writing and technique! I think the style is very similar to Varese's (which I'm a big fan of his works).

    Excellent job.
