Enigma Variations Theme (Edward Elgar)



 Genre: Classical

Get Flash to see this player.

This is the Theme of the rest of the movements from Enigma Variations. It will continue to be a work in progress. This is the latest version. I printed out the score keyboarded all the parts in. It is note for note of the original. Right now my goal is to make them sing via dynamics, mixing and time/tempo. My goal is to do all of these in a way to sound like you are listening to an actual orchestra. I've been trying to copy a performance. I've been using the London Symphony Orchestra recording of it to try to mimic a little bit.

Lovely realization...
You've taken on a huge project and the results are pretty stunning so far. As this opened, it felt a little "detached," the legato connection from note to note with way too much separation. But as the number progressed, you seem to have found your footing and the intended legato began to take over and to help the notes really sing. I think you are really on to something wonderful here and hope you will have the patience to continue experimenting with your virtual orchestra. It is so nice to hear this kind of beautiful music here.
