    RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Capriccio Espagnol !COMPLETE!

    This took a year to accomplish (I was doing other things some of the time ) and was so complex that it basically broke my computer. 14 minutes long and 100% GPO.

    I'll return with more information later. For now I'm just extremely tired.
    Cheers!

    Bravo! I really enjoyed listening to this rendering. You have done a remarkable job with all the instruments and percussion. I especially liked the way the solo instruments stepped into the spotlight for a bit. There is also quite a bit of percussion work in this that you handled nicely. Thanks for a very enjoyable concert. John

    Thanks Fredrik and bigears.

    For something else to entertain, here's what the last 52 seconds look like on my end

    Great piece, great performance, great rendering... are there more words to express my joy hearing this piece made with GPO. By the way, you displayed a picture, which program?

    Great rendering on this.

    Rimksy-Korsakov was a true genious.

    How many tracks are there in that picture?

    Well done

    A veritable tour-de-force! BRAVO!
    Props to you and props to GPO as well!!
    BTW--in the brass band version, the euphonium has the clarinet bits at the beginning.

    Thanks for expressing your joy, words or no words. I'm glad you liked it! The program I've used is FL Studio, version 8.

    Thanks for your comment. RK was indeed a genius. It's cliché to say so, but I've definitely had a life-changing experience dedicating so much attention and concentration to this score, especially after reading through "principles of orchestration" on this website a few times. It throws the whole thing into a beautiful relief. I think there are 47 tracks in that picture, 44 active. But bear in mind it's only a small part of the song. In some places there are more, some fewer. Opening all the projects to get a completely accurate count of all the instruments would take an hour in loading time alone.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it! And perhaps I should look up the band version, as that would be quite entertaining to hear (and to play, I imagine). Actually wasn't there a link of it posted a while back? Hrm....

    Chris:

    A magnificent job on a rather large project. It was a real joy
    to listen to your rendering. This is the kind of sound I want
    to hear on this site...........fully GPO. You have completed
    an awesome task with this offering, Chris and I commend you
    for your fantastic ability in using the Garritan libraries to their
    fullest capabilities.


    BRAVO
