    Smile An Orchestral Overture restored. "Filiberto!"

    I wrote the score of the Overture long time ago for a comedy, the citation of first and last bars of Haendel Alleluja are due to the story. The development is in neo-classical style, inspired by theater music of the post-Mozart time (late classic period).

    The chamber orchestra of the score is well suited to be rendered with GPO, and then I re-mastered the MIDI track to listen something better than my old synth MIDI mock-up. Strings articulations were the first challenge, mainly when uncovered in the fugato.

    I'm very pleased with the result, and then I want to share it with you. Comments are wellcome.

    Arriva Filiberto!

    Excellent!
    It sounds very much Mozartian despite the quote from Handel .

    Thanks for GPO'ing it and sharing with the community.

    Wow!

    this was fabulous Fabio!

    I agree with the Mozart comparison... There is allot of energy in this arrangement
    ... full of life and excitement!... very much in his style.

    and you've incorporated it with Handel wonderfully.

    my only critique in terms of technicalities is that of the bowing attacks... i think there could be areas where they were a bit stronger.
    still... it doesn't distract form the terrific melody!


    Fantastic work....bravo!

    Beautiful job on this, my friend.

    It is difficult to get the strings to behave even this well on those rushing passages; and to achieve clear articulation, especially on repeated notes.

    A very effective ensemble, and, of course, a most skillful arrangement!

    All my best,

    Great Fabio,
    as you know I love all your compositions!!!
    I particularly enjoyed the "fugato" part and of course the overall sound!!

    As I have already told you, I would like to be able to write such a wonderful thing!!

    Hope in a future.
    Anyway congrats on this fine piece, and many other I know you in some folder from a long time!!

    Best to you,
    Roberto

    Yes i also would like to make it stronger in fast repetitions. X custom programs and Stradivari may help...

    thanks Sean. In the 250 Mozarteum, we might dedicate some work to the good old Amadeus...hmm...what do you think?

    Fabio, I'm not surprised that you're pleased with this result! This is a great piece of writing and the realisation and production are excellent. Very real.

    I very much enjoyed listening to this.
