    Lightbulb Arr. "Beau Soir" - Claude Debussy - GPO Chamber Orch.

    Hello my fellow friends,

    Here's my arrangement of "Beau soir" from Claude Debussy.

    I use GPO Harp, Str., Solo Vln. etc..

    Please let me know your impressions.

    Fine composition, overall! The hi-string passage sounds a bit un-naturally, some EQ/enhancement might be needed IMO!
    Edit: I was referring to the "Shining Star" when I put the comment!

    Hi Jaques,

    Nice work on the piece! Debussy is just a fantastic composer, isn't he? I like how the strings are there, but in no way overpowering. The focus on the harp is a nice approach. That violin really just shines, doesn't it. And the presence in the low strings here and there is a brilliant touch adding some interesting attention-getting contrasts.

    The render is good, perhaps a little wet listening on headphones.

    Regards,
    Reegs

    Dear Long,
    Thank you for your kind words. I will take a look regarding EQ.

    Jaques, a fine arrangement of this; quite engaging.

    I'm of two minds on the reverb: on the one hand it would seem
    most fitting to the Impressionistic feel of the work; but on the
    other, perhaps a little less would enhance clarity.

    In any event, much enjoyed!

    My best,

    Dear David,

    Thank you for nice words here...yeah..clarity is the problem by working with reverb configurations. I will take a look at it..

    Thanks

    A great piece for arranging. You did a fine job on this. I think the reverb is a little wet, but that certainly is a matter of taste.
