Andy Brick's HUNGARIAN OVERTURE
Andy Brick has written an acclaimed and captivating work called "Hungarian Overture". It is one of my favorite works. The Hungarian Overture was performed with the Moravian Philharmonic during the GPO Competition Concert in the Czech Republic last year with Petr Pololonik conducting. A video of that performance was made.
DPDan took the video and worked his magic. With no audio to go by, and working with the score and the Digital Performer file, Dan did a mock-up of the Hungarian Overture and synced it to the video of the live performance.It was so enjoyable hearing Andy's piece performed live. Petr did a fine job conducting and Dan did an amazing job capturing the performance and giving the feeling you back at a live performance.Click on Play Button below to Play the Video
