Hi, I have been running a thread in the listening room about a live performance recording of mine. I could really use some help and any advice about solving a few problems and questions I have. The following is a link to the recording.
This is the entire string section performing the piece. Please remember that there will be "gaps" in the recording from taking out the winds and brass.
My biggest problem is trying to figure out if (1.) are they playing out of tune most of the time? or (2.) does the orchestration need to be worked on?
Thank you for any help, opinions, advice, and feed back you could possibly give. If it is me and the way I write and orchestrate then I need to learn and improve myself. But my "gut" is saying that it may be a mixture of both poor performance and some compositional errors. I could even post the score if you would like me to.
