    An old dude with new shoes

    .. is not the title of the piece, it has been released here before. Now completely renewed. All GPO strings of course.

    Andante Grazioso

    Yes, I know it is loaded with old classical clichés, that was the purpose.

    Nice piece, well rendered grace notes . Is that what the "grazioso" is referring too? The structure reminded me more of a Scherzo, by the way.

    Then I would have called it: Andante Gracioso. (haha).
    Rendering those grace notes were the hardest part.......

    Hi Raymond,

    Very nice mix and render on this and a great character piece.

    The old boy sounded well pleased with his purchase on the whole, but did I detect a touch of discomfort here and there where the new shoes were rubbing? By the sound of it, he also picked up some "third party" attention along the way!

    A great listen - thanks for sharing!

    Best regards,

    Keith

    Discomfort? Where?
    Third party attention? What do you mean by this?

    Just uploaded a new version (same link). One can look and look a thousand times and not seeing it. But after all I found out that some keyswitches weren't in time. To speak with DPDAN in another thread: I did fix it (see: http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...1&postcount=99)

    Hi Raymond,

    Apologies for the somewhat veiled references. The "discomfort" I referred to was the slightly wistul mood in some of the episodes, as if your "old dude" was not completely comfortable in his new shoes but putting a brave face on it for the sake of passers-by. As to the "third party attention", I thought I heard some signs of romantic dalliance along the way (possibly culminating in a"dudette" on his arm at the end?)

    Probably just my overactive imagination and a side effect of upgrading to Windows 7!

    Anyway, thanks again for the listen.

    Best regards,

    Keith

    Then I must install this also, when it has such effects......

    And I learned three new words:

    dalliance
    wistful
    dudette

    So this forum is useful for extending my vocabulary.

    Aw, a delightful mix with a lot of gracious effects. I enjoy all your renderings. Skillfully composed and rendered.

    Just beautiful Raymond - again with the Old World charm and the melancholy shadows of history, tempering your prose. Nicely done, I must say!
    Perhaps I hear a bit of the Spanish Vacation in the mix?

    Best regards,
