    Galop in Viennese style

    I know it's a bit out of season, but having listened to some Viennese New Year concerts recordings recently, I though it would be fun to try to write a galop in that style. So here is my effort, quick and short. Alas I haven't the VPO at my disposal, but the GPO is standing in at short notice!

    Eugene,

    A fine romp and a pleasure to listen. This is certainly a good job done with the worthy sustitute Orchestra provided for you.

    My Best

    I agree with Ray -- what a romp! And you've got the
    style down cold.

    I enjoyed this, Eugene; nice job on it!

    Happy New Year,

    I don't know about that - I actually preferred this to a lot of the New Year's Day fare. I find Strauss, in particular, horribly predictable, whereas this threw up surprises at just the right moments. Wonderful stuff.

    NICE, Eugene!

    A lively duple time Galop indeed, with wonderful old-fashioned turns as well as fresh unpredictable ones as well.

    A much appreciated detail is your delicate use of the Cymbals--They can certainly be more flexible than the way in which we often heard them used.

    Great fun to hear a full blown GPO piece--Thanks for it!

    Excellent stuff!

    Wonderful writing - I especially liked the way you scored for the flutes - very effective.

    Well done Eugene.
    Regards

    David, Pingu, Randy and Jon - thanks for those great comments which I find very encouraging.
    I was lucky enough to attend the VPO Vienna New Year concert for 2005 with Lorin Mazel, and stiull have some of those Strauss works ringing in my ears!
    One of my ambitions is to write a good waltz in that style, but have to work up the right combination of inspiration/perspiration!

    Very nice and very fun. I don’t know a huge amount about this style, but this sounds very authentic to my ear.
