    Graduation Music

    Gentlemen,
    here's another one for the Garritan Listening Room Summer Festival. Since you claimed for showering off dust from some oldies, I rediscovered for you a composition I wrote this there years ago to celebrate my niece's graduation at Birmingham University (UK). She never heard it.
    Scored and performed with Sibelius 5 and bundled Garritan instruments (ah, these good gold days...)

    Nice work, Fabio! Excellent rendering you got from Sibelius. And I like the tone of your graduation composition. Though it has the appropriate triumphant, hopeful feel we would expect, it's more thoughtful and less pompous than some traditional music written for these occasions. Why didn't your niece ever hear it?

    Because I feel ashamed

    ---Why?
    It's my nature.

    Hi Fabio,

    This was fun to hear one of your past works; perfect variety for the festival! My favorite part: The omni-present timpani ... underpinning ... underpinning ... underpinning ...

    I've noticed that technology hasn't made anyone here at the forum a better musician; the talent and style is just as evident in these older pieces as in the various musician's current works. I suspect it's just easier today to achieve what you want, and therefore, perhaps we tackle more ambitious projects.

    Thanks for posting this,

    Frank

    A very well made celebratory fanfare, Fabio -- and
    a strong rendering from Sibelius. Though I've worked
    with it a little over the years, I could never get nearly
    that sound from it.

    Fabio, this seems to invite another movement (hint)...
    perhaps you might consider?

    All the best,



    David

    Hello Fabio! I must agree with Randy, that this is a nice change of pace from typical graduation music. Though, after playing Pomp and Circumstance on loop for many-a-graduation, you could say I am a bit biased. This could also be fairly easy to march to as well, but those graduaters never walked as quickly as we wanted to....so many repeats...

    Thanks for sharing!
