I just downloaded the basic version of the Authorized Steinway. I must say, that it blew me away. I played with it for about 10 minutes, then became inspired.
It has been extremely cold here in Dayton, Ohio the past few days. Yesterday, the high was -3 and the lows dipped down to -15, without wind chills. Needless to say, one of my cars won't start and my son has been shut up indoors, staying home from day care the past two days.
Anyway, to make a long story short, after messing with the Steinway for a few minutes, I wrote this piece. It's in three short movements.
I. First Snow Fall in the Woods
II. Midnight in the Dead of Winter
III. The Sun Rising Over a Field of Ice and Snow
Here's the link:
Three Scenes of Winter
I wrote and recorded this yesterday using Sibelius 5 and the basic version of the Steinway.
I hope you enjoy it. Please let me know what you think.
Have a good day, my friends.
