I have not posted anything here for quite a while so I am finally surfacing with a piece I did almost a year ago now for piano and orchestra. (Beginning of the End) Unfortunately my job these days takes care of most of my spare time.
I am using the Garritan basic Steinway piano (which is the only piano I ever use these days) plus a variety of strings and brass from a couple of different libraries. The piano is front and centre in terms of the composition so it was a challenge to figure out how and how much of the orchestra to add into the mix.
Any suggestions, concerns with the composition, rendering and or mix are always welcome!
