    Beethoven

    This is a more traditional piece from "pianostudent playing with orchestra" project. It´s the second movement of Beethovens 5th pianoconcerto. I used my old score for two pianos and listen to a very old recording from Amsterdam when I transcribed it for the instruments we had. Also some difficult parts was made more easy and/or moved some of the piano to the orchestra.

    As usual it is recorded with Garritan Studio directly from the Finale score. Unfortunately this also means I don´t have any sustain pedal on the piano but I think it works good anyway.

    Very diligent and accurate work. I think the Finale/Garritan Studio combo did a superb job here, though of course the arrangement is well thought out.

    I listened to this masterpiece after quite an absence.

    Thank you for sharing it.

    Excellent job on this, Björn; very able thinking in the
    arranging of it, a fine interpretation, and quite well
    rendered.

    I can't say I miss the use of the sostenuto pedal
    overly (most players use far too much on Beethoven,
    anyway) -- however, you can use Ped. and * (lift)
    from the expressions in Finale.

    A most enjoyable listen!

    My best,

    This was great.

    I don't think I have heard this for some time.


    An all around fine job on it. It's a wonderful time to be a music student.

    Thanks David,

    I also am of the opinion there often are to much pedal and in this piece I think it´s better without it.

    However I can´t use Finale expressions for the pedal since I am using Garritan Studio. You can only have one setting for CC#64 in Studio and it is set for legato.

    Very well done. This one will be a great plus for your students.

    You can add sustain in Finale by adding the cc values as well as using the pedal. Sometimes the cc values work better, at least tghey do in sibelius.

    Thanks Ron,

    I can off course add cc values in Finale but the problem is that sustain pedal and legato both use CC#64 in GPO. Garritan Studio can only use the #64 midi event either to affect the sustain pedal or legato, not both. And I have choosen it to affect legato.

    In KP2 you can have both working but these files was made in Studio. I will begin new projects in the future using KP2 as a standalone.

    You have done a delightful rendition of this incredibly beautiful masterpiece. It is very delicately performed. I thought the tempo was a little too quick, but it was no less beautiful because of that. Great job! Thank you.
    Kind Regards
