    Anitra's Dance - Grieg

    "Antira's Dance" was composed by Edvard Grieg, Op. 46 No. 3 from the Peer Gynt Suite I. This rendering from the orchestral score is for strings and triangle using the GPO string selections as follows;

    Vln 1 - Vln 1 KS, Vln 1 Pizz
    Vln 2 - Vln 2 KS, Vln 2 Pizz
    Vla 1 - Vla 1 KS, Vla 1 Pizz
    Vla 2 - Vla 2 KS, Vla 2 Pizz
    Vlc 1 - Vlc 1 KS, Vlc 1 Pizz
    Vlc 2 - Vlc 2 KS, Vlc 2 Pizz
    D.B. - Basses KS, Basses Pizz
    Basic Orch Percussion - Triangle

    The score is reproduced in Finale 2006 to the original score with some adjustments to balance the parts and to select the pizzacato and arco setting for each instrument.

    Hi Gary:

    A really great mock-up of this fine composition by Grieg. I have played it many times on the piano.

    Your individual instruments sound terrific, but on my computer, the pizz accompaniment drowned out the string melody. It sounded like the pizz strings were "up front" and the melody strings were way back behind the curtain. May just be my Windows Media Player, but that's the way I heard it.

    Great use of the GPO samples, Gary. Enjoyed listening. Perfect tempo too.

    Jack,

    I tried rebalancing the parts better and downloaded it again. What I am finding is that the pizzacato lines are not following the dynamic markings well, even though I am using the Finale Human Playback. This normally produces excellent results for dynamics and accept marking interpretation. But I find that the pizzacato strings are not following it well in this piece and I cannot find a reason for it.

    However, I think that this is better that the first download.

    ANn excellent job Gary. I enjoyed the work. It does seem that the way to
    get a more accurate performance is to use dynamics and ar†iculations
    which aid the balance.

    One of my favorite pieces by the incredible Grieg... Those pizzicato sound great on my headphones, the main melody doesn't sound drowned out at all... great rendering!

    Gary,

    Thanks for you listening to it and your comments. It is some more work to put the extra performance details in for a proper playback. But I think that it is work it in the end. You works are coming along nicely too!

    Sean,

    Thanks for you comments. I tweeked the balance and reloaded the mp3. So you heard an improved version. But it is a neat piece and the pizzacato comes out really nice I agree.

    Peer Gynt Suite has been one of my favorites and you did this dance excerpt justice with your rendition. Excellent use of the GPO strings within Finale 2006. I enjoyed this very much and I hope you do more of the suite.

    Thanks for posting this
