    Autumn Leaves Steinway

    Hi everyone,
    Styxx reminded us on the General Discussion board that fall is here
    and all the gorgeous colors it brings.

    Speaking of colors, I thought I would quickly throw this arrangement
    together on the Garritan Steinway. As you might have guessed,
    it was played only a few chords at a time, and was arranged on the fly.

    The arrangement is based on a four part arrangement that the Four
    Freshmen sang years ago. I remember my Dad's barbershop quartet singing this.
    Of course it is no longer four part

    Just one verse
    Enjoy!

    Hi. You wrote that your performance has few chords but is plenty of feeling and intensity. It has a nostalgic and reflexive character. I can hear a person behind the keyboard. The natural and genuine touch is something that gives soul to the music. You managed very fine the diferents dynamics layers too. Congratulations.

    Thumbs up Re: Autumn Leaves Steinway

    That's beautiful Dan. You do indeed have the perfect touch! I'm glad you didn't do that flamboyant version i have heard, i like that version ok, but this sounds much more like the actual song, slow and sentimental.

    Dan,

    Lovely arrangement on Autumn Leaves and nice production too. Music does not have to be complex to be satifying.

    Very pretty, indeed. It's amazing how beautiful a piece can
    be when it is performed via an intraspective thought process.
    The slow, deliberate, rubato treatment was very effective in
    eliciting great feeling from the listener and that is what music
    is all about.

    BRAVO, my friend

    Another amazing piano endeavor from a master audio engineer.

    P.S. Did you use the "classical" or "under the lid?" (wrong on both?...lol)

    the falling leaves,
    drift by the window,
    the autumn leaves,
    of red and gold.
    I see your lips, the summer kisses,
    the sunburned hands, I used to hold.

    Since you went away,
    the days grow long,
    and soon I'll hear,
    ol' winter's song.....
    but I miss you most of all my darling,
    when autumn leaves,....

    start to,

    fall


    thank you everyone

    Great and filled with the right mood. Three questions? Do I hear, near the end, that nasty pedal sustain sound (right ear with headphones). How did you overcome those timbre/intonation errors (as far as I know from F#3 upwards with velocity at least 70). Or did you lower all velocities and just amplified it after rendering?

    The noise you are hearing randomly appears in both channels.
    Not aware of any excessive timbre or intonation errors from F#3 and up.

    I played this piece very softly, I have twenty two notes that exceed a velocity of 70 and the highest is 87. I'm not sure what you are hearing, since timbre and intonation are totally separate things.

    Glad you liked it Raymond.
