Mozartiana
oh Scottie, this is fabulous. One of my fave Tschaikovsky - you've done it real justice! Thanks sir for the D/L!

Tchaikovsky adored Mozart
- probably his favorite composer. This is a loving tribute to Wolfgang by him and a loving tribute to both of them by you Scotty.
Just beautiful.

You always...
... teach me a lesson with every one of your posts. Incredible arrangement. I always dig your song descriptions too because they give insight and set the mood for every piece quite well. Excellent, as usual.

Mozartiana
Quality listen, Scotty. I really like the emotional swell of the strings that Tchaikovsky turned into an art form. Thanks, Peter.

I wonder...
...what Mozart (or Tchaikovsky) would have done had they an orchestra living inside their hard drives. ...
You have achieved a very rich sound with the orchestration, especially when horns and winds enter, though the strings are quite beautifully rendered, too. I know how hard it is to get digital strings to sound right and I think you have done an excellent job with them for the most part. Now and again this gets a little loud all of a sudden (e.g. 2:42 and from about 3:00-3:40), but I have to admire the patience you demonstrate in laying all these tracks down so well...and your general sensitivity to the sound you are creating. It's really quite astonishing. Lucky us to hear your vision for this (and other) beautiful piece.

Dynamics
Thank you for the kind words Paul. Yes dynamics can really be a challenge, trying to
build as you move along without any spikes unless called for. I am trying to hold back on all volumes
then I have more headroom to expand when desired. Velocity of individual notes is a lot of work but I find it humanizes the MIDI music and gives the desired warm sounds all music strives for.
I wonder also what the composers would have thought of digital music. Some never lived to hear their compositions performed by an orchestra.
