Description
Today as we inaugurate the president here's a piece for another who has always had a special place in my heart.

Just finished a video for this. It's not fancy but I think it works. Also the music has improved some with a better mix and some compositional changes as well.

What a beautiful opening theme. Perfectly fits the day and the inspiration behind the piece. The dynamic build is excellent. Great orchestration. Harmonically rich. Such realistic sounding instruments. Really says something about the expertise with which you can work with software instruments.

I've been
working on this for a while and I'm still tinkering with it but with today's inauguration I couldn't resist posting what I have so far.
Thanks Andrew,
Cheers,
Charlie

Strong.
This has a stately strength and dignity to it very well suited to the subject. I like the fact that I can feel the bass in my chest when it plays back, but it doesn't overwhelm the lovely main melody. Downloaded, thanks for posting it.

I'm glad
you found strength in this. I think it's there with perhaps also a quite resolve.
Thanks Fire,
Charlie

This piece
would sit very comfortably in the new film about Lincoln... I've only seen excerpts, but it looks great..... this music has that real grand and stately feel of early America..... as was said by Andrew, great orchestration, regards M

The film
is quite good and so is Williams score but I can't help wondering what I would have done if I had that opportunity…well maybe this is what.
Thank Maurice,
Charlie

Lincoln.
Great orchestration work! The instruments are perfect. We just saw the movie Lincoln and your piece reflects such a great man during that time and era.

This piece is so...presidential! I like the slow build up. Almost has a western feel to it as well. Nice stuff, man!

Lincoln
Impressive music, Charlie. Majestic, put-your-chest-out-and-be-proud music! It has strength and character but not in an aggressive way. I like it a lot!

I decided
not to go with the Abe Lincoln Vampire killer approach.
Thanks Philip.

watch out, John Williams
So, I am thinking that the DVD version of "Lincoln" will, at the very least, have a set of featurettes behind which will be the Charlie Mazarakes soundtrack :Lincoln." You've got the majesty here just perfectly. The orchestration and your performance all sound like they have been recorded live, which adds to the authenticity you've created. Great track.

I don't think
Mr. Williams has much to worry about from me… but hey he won't be around forever.

I'm glad you found this has a live character to it. Of course the initial input is performed live and I try to maintain that quality as much as I can throughout as I work on it.

Thanks Paul,
Charlie

I am so pleased
you continue to offer these downloads Charlie .... thank you. About this piece of work ... well it showcases your amazing ability to create such huge soundscapes that pull the mind and ear into such delightful places. I too find Mr. Lincoln a most amazing individual. I watched as the crowds gathered for the recent inauguration on the Mall ... this mass of not just blue or red but Americans. This is a perfect sound track for such occasions. Perfection sir.

I found
the inauguration very inspiring so much it compelled me to post this work - a bit early but I'm glad I did. The video has a recent and I think better version of the music.

Somehow I'm not surprised that you also find Lincoln amazing - he was.
Thanks Jack,
Charlie

Perfect fit
Charlie, this track perfectly fits the title, seconds in and you 'get it'. This is a beautiful, stirring track, which brings to mind the West Wing for me! You continue to produce orchestral work to a really high standard, and your work always has a great warmth and emotion. Thanks for continuing to share your work.

Thanks my friend.
