    Transitions In Life with Garritan Steinway Model D

    Hi everyone,
    my only composition to date.

    I named it Transitions in Life. It features transitions from elevator music, love theme music, some John Williams and of course there is some David Foster style in there too, and a Jeremy Lubbock flavored ending.

    Transitions In Life

    The PDF Score was created by Jim Wiiliams (snorlaz). I thank him for making this score only from me counting and my midi file.
    That could not have been easy.


    I dedicate this to my good friend Gary Garritan. He said I should dedicate it to Sparky, my wonderful 16 year old Schnauzer that I had to put to sleep in November 2006. So Gary, I dedicate it to both you and Sparky, because you and Sparky mean more to me than anyone will ever know.

    Dan, I first listened to this some time ago. Now you have re-done it with the Steinway Piano and it seems just wonderful to me. The dynamics as it progresses are most effective and it seems like the Steiny can stand up to some banging on the keys. Your spatial settings of the instruments
    are absolutely great as well. Thanks for bringing this back to the forum.
    Best Regards, John (bigears)

    Absolutely gorgeous, Dan.

    Oh, yes, of course the flawless rendering and
    that lovely new Steinway add to it... but I
    mean the piece, itself, too, my friend.

    Beautifully done, Dan. I sincerely hope you
    will find more time for writing.

    With admiration,

    Nice one, Mr. Dan. Very nice! The piano sounds great and you did a fine job on the instrumentation. Just an all-around fine effort and I really enjoyed it.

    My best,

    Very pretty composition and very well rendered (that last part goes without saying). This was very familiar so I took a quick trip back. It was almost exactly a year ago that you posted the original version. It looks like you over wrote the older version so I can’t compare, but I do remember that I liked it back then without the Steinway. Hard to believe perfection can be improved.... Overall this version sounds great. Write more music…..

    Absolutely SUPER, Dan.

    We all know of your mixing skills, but now we know
    you can write too (when you really want to).........lol

    A great composition and so well rendered.

    BRAVO, Dan

    Thanks guys!
    Another forum member said he had not heard it before hearing it on the Garritan Steinway demo page. He told me that I should repost it. I assured him that I had already posted it back a year or so ago and that I shouldn't bump my own post. He said newcomers would not find it.

    Anyway, I just wanted to clear myself of any unfair bumpage

    Thanks again everyone!

    "Bumpage?" What the heck is "unfair bumpage?"

    Sounds like garbage in a rundown area of a city
    that procreates "bums." Just kidding, Dan.......lol

    On the other hand, what is "fair bumpage?".......
    (another lol)

    Dan -

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: you are truly a fine musician.

    I followed the score (and a thanks to Jim for his contribution!) while listening. Pulse changed, smile formed. Absolutely gorgeous! Creative and emotive.

    Thank you for re-orchestrating this one.
