Herewith is my all-GPO "Sketch In B Minor" (relative to D Major, two sharps).
Use caution with your volume. The horns are aggressive (sfz and fff in places) in the opening measures.
Just great and never make anything in be minor again. Just be major!!!!
OK...whatever you say.Originally Posted by Raymond62
Thanks for listening.
Interesting thematic material. You should definitely develop this into something "big". The reverb was just slightly heavy for my taste, but that's just me. A nicely done sketch overall.

It's as "big" as it's going to get. I don't think that I will be spending any more time on it.

I agree with FiziWig. To not develop this into a complete cycle will be bordering on criminal neglect. Great sounds and a very satisfactory ending, especially if you are proceding into Mvmt II, or better yet, the development section.
As a brass player, I must warn you, that if you present this to a live group, expect some flack about the range from the French Horn section, but I am on your side because I love screaming Fr.Hns.
Isn't it great to have such a talent/gift as yours and get to have as much fun with it as you do?
I need a "green with envy" smile!
Once again, another great Alexander piece. I guess they should callyou Alexander the Great! I enjor the horn lines emmensely. Great renering. I agree with the comment about a little too much reverb.

Only thing off has been stated as the reverb. Other than that a great piece.
