I just picked up VSL Percussions, Dan Dean Woods and Brass, and Garritan Lite. I listen to a lot of the percussion on the VSL, and I\'m not always picturing good use of how to impliment the sounds, mainly from a lack of composing classical music personally. Now I\'m watching movies and hearing all these sounds, and now want to listen to a LOT more good, complex examples that utilize the full orchestra in that \'Hollywood\' sort of vein.
On that note - does anyone have suggestions for CD\'s to buy/listen to? Stuff that\'s hit the bargain bin would be welcome, but I have that feeling the full \'hollywood\' type of scores are more \'modern\', and I wouldn\'t be hearing this type of score in the $2.99 classical CD bin. I know a LOT of you have much more exposure to classical music than I have, and can name off artists.
Based on the libraries I have, suggestions of music that use those elements in them? Thanks!
