    Elsa's Procession-wagner/calliet

    AN ARRANGEMENT BY LUCIEN CALLIET OF WAGNER'S ELSA'S PROCESSION TO THE CATHEDRAL. My favorite piece to perform
    among all of the pieces I played over 50 years.

    Gary,

    Yes a favorite of mine as well. Overall it is a fine rendering of this work. I do notice that the wonderful mid and lower brass lines in the last third might be stronger. So you have a timpani line as well? Even so, such an exciting piece. Thanks for sharing it with the forum.

    Thanks Gary,
    I am limited by my computer from any good volume contrast. I had to mute some instruments to achieve this amount of sound. I have †he master volume at 30. Any crescendi create a chasm of noise.

    Gary,

    I understand that condition all too well. It is a great effort and fine output on your part to make it happen.

    Beautifully done rendering on this, Gary -- smooth
    as velvet, and I think quite a good interpretation
    of the piece as well... neither too rushed nor too
    slow; neither too meek nor too emphatic... a very
    natural, unforced feel to it.

    The recording was somewhat low (no doubt due
    to the system problems you cite); but the quality
    was quite good.

    My best,
