This is my first attempt using a full orchestra with GPO. It's still a work in progress as I am having a little trouble with balancing instruments especially with stereo and pan (as I've only got one amplifier and no headphones) so all instruments are centred.
With the main melody, I have incorporated it into a concerto for Piano - first movement finished, but not orchestrated yet - going to be a while.
I have listened through and thought the sections with lots of instruments sounded rich and dramatic. As far as what to call it, you said it was an overture, but not said an overture to what? It sounds, to my impressionable ears at least, like a dark and stormy war torn landscape, makes me think of Europe and WW2.
The more complex sections (number of instruments-wise) really sounded pretty good and were quite effective.
I hope I got the right piece... the one labeled Overture, I assume.
Peter, there's some fine work in this -- I truly enjoyed the writing.
But you really must get at least headphones... lol! With some
shining up of the rendering on this, it'd be a real knock-out -- all
the basics are there.
