    King Lear Music (Sirulnikoff)

    Hi All,

    These are two short music cues I wrote for a production of 'King Lear' many years ago.

    They are written for two trumpets and two trombones. The titles are 'Fanfare' (which uses GPO), and 'Cortege' (which uses GJBB).

    King Lear Music

    I hope you enjoy it.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

    Hi, Jack

    Very nice theatre music - Noble fanfare for the King, and "Cortege" is full of the dangerous, ominous atmosphere that drives the play.

    I think some time ago you shared some other of your incidental cues for Lear?

    Thanks!

    Randy

    Hi Randy,

    Thanks for listening and commenting.

    My previous posting of incidental music for a play, was the music for Moliere's 'The Doctor in Spite of Himself'. I believe those pieces were a little more substantial (at least, longer) than these.

    Thnks again for your comments.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

    Hey Jack,

    Great Fanfare! I don't think the rendering does your wonderful work justice; but I can honestly imagine this live. It would be very powerful and grand.

    The second work is such a drastic change. A well written melancholy departure from the Fanfare.

    Much enjoyed.

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for listening, and for your kind comments.

    If the rendering aspects you are referring to involve EQ and filtering, these are things I'm not too conversant with, and rarely use. I should experiment with that more. Even with reverb, I often simply just apply a preset to the dry file, as I did in this case.

    Thanks again.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

    Nice work on these, Jack.

    I particularly liked much of the harmonic work
    in the second piece. Perhaps you might take
    that further?

    My best,



    David

    I am sure this would be great in a live setting.

    I do very little EQ'ing in my pieces but I do a lot of work getting the reverbs right. If you use the new GPO4, you should be able to use the sends to get some reverb into the piece to give the instruments their own space.

    Nice work

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for your comments and suggestions.

    I am thinking of getting GPO4, but I think it will impact on the way I do things, so I want to finish what I'm working on first.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

    Hi Jack.
    Two nice works. I've been where you are now. I think if you go to your mixer and adjust the levels , this will improve balance.
    You can listen and adjust each part to a balance.
    Particularly in the 1st piece. The trombones overpower the trumpets & the trumpet solo has no life.
    The 2nd was better balance-perhaps because of the differet register sounding.
