Fredrik Schultz has sent in his A Midsummer Wedding. Here is a link to the composition:
This is Fredeik's second classical inspired score he has written. It was written as a wedding gift to a friend who got married during midsummer's eve this year.
He wrote that he wanted to write something that reflected both the occassion and the bright swedish summer and that it was composed during a three day period (approximately 6-7 hours in total) ranging from mockup to the final orchestration. Fredrik is learning orchestration and is using GPO as a tool to do so.
The instrumentation is as follows (in order of appearance): comp (strings & brass): - vlns 1 short bows - cellos short bows - violas lush - basses sus+short - basses pizzicato - tuba 1 solo - french horn 1 plr1 - french horn 1 plr2; melody (strings/primary): - violin 2 strad plr2 - violin 3 guarn plr1 - viola plr2; melody (strings/secondary): - violin 2 strad plr1 - violin 1 gagli plr1 - viola plr1; melody (woodwind #1): - bb clarinet plr1 - bb clarinet plr2 - bass clarinet plr2; melody (brass): - tpt 1 plr1 - tpt 1 plr2 - french horn 2 plr1 - french horn 2 plr3 - tenor tbone plr2; melody (woodwind #2): - oboe 1 modern plr1 - oboe 1 modern plr2 - english horn plr1
Very beautiful work Fredrik. It must have made the wedding very special. I cannot think of a better wedding gift to a friend. Thanks for sending this.
