    Smile Breath of Dawn for Orchestra (GPO4 demo)

    I was commissioned to write an orchestral suite for Tyler Youth Orchestra in TX ( http://www.tyleryouthorchestra.org ). It was a good opportunity for me to try new GPO 4, so I made a demo mp3 of the piece.
    Sounds are from Aria GPO 4.
    Reverb is old Cubase's Reverb A, preset "large" mixed 50%.

    Here is the link.

    The premiere performance would be on 2/28.

    The specified instrumentation is:
    Kentaro Sato (Ken-P)

    Oh Ken, that is absolutely gorgeous. What a wonderful piece of music! Congratulations on the commission. I only wish I could be down there to hear the premiere! Fabulous piece of music!

    Hi Ken,

    WOW!! That is simply breathtaking music. I really enjoyed it; just magnificent!

    If I'm not prying too much into your orchestration magic, what would be the live quantity and balance of the strings (1st Vlns, 2nd ..., etc.)?

    Every once in a while I go to your site just to listen to the "Peter Pan" music ... you are very gifted and generous to share your music on this site and your site as well ... thanks.

    Regards and good luck with the live performance,

    That sounds absolutely lovely. Very relaxing music. I like how it keeps varying and returning to the (C-D-C-B-G-C) theme, and the arpeggios and glissandi are real ear candy. This should get a few hands clapping.

    Gorgeousness, Ken - Bravo, I feel like I've been to the concert, your piece came through so nicely in your recording. Thanks for giving us the preview!

    The title covers exactly the music. Nice, smooth and well fit for a Youth Orchestra. Gives me some restfullness (spelling!!) on this very Friday evening.

    Thank you for bringing this,

    Kentaro - wow - you make it seem so effortless - which I know it is not-not to mention a lot of hard work.

    You have a great sense of melody and stitching melodies together.
