    Piano Trio 4th movement with Stradi and Gofriller

    Hi,

    I've just completed my first piano trio, which has 4 movements in total and is rendered with Garritan Stradi, Gofriller and PMI the old lady. I edited no MIDI CC and no velocity but used a lot of articulation symbols in the score to control Kontakt2.

    the 4th movement (has Japanesque melody)

    its score (sorry, very busy)
    http://www.box.net/shared/fp8ff97v2u

    and, for Overture4 win users and its demo users, the score file and VST definition files

    I'm a novice hobbyist composer who love Garritan Stradi and Gofriller, and hardly wait to use new Garritan solo viola and the official Steinway.

    Hopefully enjoy

    First, this is a masterpiece. Second, in some areas the cello is too dominant (the first few lines in the score). Third, it stays a masterpiece, though I am not so familiar with that kind of musical idiom. I carefully read your score at the same time and I must say again: wonderful. Once in a while I wished the piano a bit less in the foreground, but that is my opinion.

    Score-based? Excellent result, bravo, Tatsu-san. (- -)

    This is wonderful music. Lots of contrast, lots of energy, and beautiful spaciousness; it all adds up to a very effective piece. I do wonder, though, if some of the pizzicato passages are possible at this tempo. No matter - this is a sufficient listening experience as it is.

    Bravo!!

    Tatsu:

    A lovely Japanese melody and well-rendered. The
    sound, for a score-based product, is really good.

    I think your interest in music composition should
    be broadened to consider studying seriously all
    forms of music: Theory, orchestration, composition,
    etc. You appear to have a large degree of musical
    talent.

    Thank you for your kind comment. I found I prefer Gofriller's sound to Stradi's by reading your post. What a flowing sound like earth tremor it has!
    And, I certainly turned up the volume slightly on the piano track at the last minute of mastering, but now I agree with you.

    Arigato gozaimasu. Yes, this sound is score-based and absolutely no MIDI edited. Your instruments hold the promise of being composers' paradise.

    And, I have heard from my friend who sings classical songs that she was moved to tears when she listened to your Gofriller.

    Thank you for your listening. I was afraid some pizzicato are unplayable because I have not ever heard such a speedy pizzicato, but I couldn't help changing them to arco. As to a kontakt2 PLAYER, he can play them well.

    Hello, Jack

    Thank you. I'm glad to read your post, though honestly I have just started to study music by myself. I may be growing in composition bit by bit.

    Tatsu, I hear tremendous promise in this work; there
    is a powerful, energetic, highly inventive tenor to so
    much of the piece -- which can only emerge from
    a voice and heart that have much to say.

    Thank you also for the well done score, Tatsu; this
    is something I always appreciate.

    Technically, especially coming from notation, you have
    done an admirable job of bringing forth the best from
    the strings; and the sound treatment, to my ear,
    was quite, quite good.

    In the writing, I might suggest a second look at some
    of the low, closely spaced piano chords. The strong
    contrasts of the piece, I did indeed like -- very success-
    ful, and they make perfect sense while naturally adding
    dynamism and firmly maintaining the listener's interest,
    throughout.

    Keep it coming, Tatsu! Strong work!

    All my best,
