"Moonlight" Sonata movement 1, Orchestrated

Uploaded .

Scored for harp, flute, french horns, trombones, tuba.

Still not quite as mixed as I’d like still unrealistic in places.

I own the piano score but I found an accurate score as a midi file on the net and started from there. (That saved a 2 or 3 hours at my pace.) Then I loaded the file into Sonar 8.5 and orchestrated it by assigning instruments to the VSTi called Kontakt 4 and its Vienna Symphony samples. Adjusting velocities / color / and a few notes took 3-4 hours. The most difficult part was creating the final mix which I'm still not 100% happy with.

well done friend,,, it's wonderful piece, and your orchestration it very interesting,,, some questions (and i'll make these as public, in case anyone else is interested in the tech aspects) did you have a digital piano score,, or working from printed manuscript first or perhaps you already know this memorized and broke it out from that? about how long did this process take??? It's a cool thought/work,,, and though i have not done this myself ,, yet,, it looks like a lot of fun.... once again well done,, i am constantly amazed at your creative/musical talents... Richard

The low brass captures the mood of the piece perfectly. Nice interplay between the voices. Well done!
