    Arrow "Suite Number Two For Strings"

    Y'all,

    Here is an excerpt from my "Suite Number Two For Strings" .

    I first posted this over a year ago. Today I rewrote a part of it. It is all-strings and all-GPO.

    My best to all,

    Yes, I remember this one [that's a good thing -- when people
    actually remember what you wrote... lol].

    There seem to be some deep fades in this, Larry, was that
    intentional?

    Nice job on this on the overall... though I think I might fiddle
    more with the sound treatment, were it me. I find it very
    difficult myself to bring a good full, smooth sound to the
    strings without falling over the cliff with the reverb tails.

    Which, of course, is why I never wear tails whilst mountain-
    climbing.

    All my best,

    This is the LGA we've all grown to love. However,I agree with the comment re: the dynamics, not because they are bad, but if you were to be true to the Baroque style, I believe they used "terraced" dynamics, so a passage was either loud or soft but no crescendos or decrescendos.
    I hesitate to comment because I can certainly not do what you do
    and, what the hell, the Baroque Period is over, and we can use it as we see fit.
    Good work (as usual.)

    Thanks for your comments.

    I was around when the Baroque period began.

    I don't have any particular "period" in mind when I write. I don't consciously try to emulate any music style of the past, present or future. I just write what I hear in my wrinkled old head. If something I write sounds Baroque, then so be it. I never attempt to write music that sounds as though it adheres to the style of a particular music era.

    I liked your string suite. I enjoyed the lush string sound.

    I think the fades were interesting.
