    "Stringtacular"

    Music Lovers,

    This is my all-strings work, "Stringtacular", for small orchestra.

    All instruments are from the GPO sample library. I am especially pleased with the pizz sounds. Do you concur?

    The solo violin is the GPO Stradivarius.

    Regards,

    Larry

    Yes, the change ups really help to keep this interesting and moving along. The pizz backing section and the introduction of the second part where it changes to what sounds to me like a dance rhythm are my favorite parts. Thanks for sharing this. John

    I've said on other occasions, Larry, that your
    pizz'ing is indeed noteworthy; so, yes, I concur.

    You've also gotten remarkable mileage out of
    the GPO/Strad in this; really quite, quite good!

    Nice work on this, my friend!

    My best,

    Thank you, John, for your comments.

    I guess you are referring to the part where I change the meter (Brit. - metre) to 3/4. (?)

    Hi again Larry,
    Yes, I was referring to the time change that comes in at about 0:38 I believe. I just re-listened to this piece and I do like the location of the changes that occur throughout. I know the great composers all made use of the time signature change, or change from major to minor, etc. to great effect. Nice work! John

    Larry:
    You have, indeed, got your strings under control; ask any conductor and he will tell you that that is not an easy thing to do.
    Nice variety of tempi and styles. Well done.

    Hi Larry,

    Yes, I concur! Loved all the pizz stuff, right down to the final two plucks to finish it up. The rest of it wasn't too shabby, either. The meter and tempo changes were pulled of as deftly as usual, and added much character to the feel of this. Much enjoyed this morning... thanks for another fine one, Larry!
