    Dalbavie.  Thorny, but engaging.

    The American composer Lowell Liebermann has a new album out today as a pianist.  He plays works written by himself and also by Miloslav Kabeláč, Liszt, Schubert, and Busoni.
     
    I've only listened to his own pieces, but I'm a big fan of his music and can unequivocally recommend those:
     
    Gargoyles
    4 Apparitions
    Nocturne No. 10

    Typo fixed
     
     
     
    I understand, which is why there is no reason to add "Prelude" to your website at all.
     
    You should either list all these works:
    Violin Concerto Hollywood Bowl Centennial Fanfare Vienne Processional Prelude Or none of these works.
     
    All of them are identical to each other.
     
    They are all works that have been announced, but have not been performed yet.
     
    There is literally nothing making Prelude different in any way from any of these other 3 works.

    There is also a violin concerto he composed for Anne Sophie Mutter in 2020.  They talked about it together on CBS Sunday Morning interview last year.

    karelm got a reaction from Will in Does JW listen to expansions when approving them? Does he remember older scores simply reading the cue list?   
    I think I remember Jay did an interview with Mike and one of the questions of the extent of JW's involvement was discussed.  It sounded like he's quite involved even saying certain cues can't be released for various reasons.

    The cello notes are not C but a cluster starting on C, C#, D, D#, E (divided in 5) all starting on their respective notes glissing up the string.

    karelm reacted to Marian Schedenig in Anyone else is a fan of French Horns? (The official French Horn thread)   
    That's why I posted a version with score, because I wasn't 100% sure myself. It lists 8 horns without specifying Wagnertuben (it also says "Alle 8 Hörner ohne Dämpfer", i.e. unmuted, on the previous page), so I assume it's regular horns. I'm also *quite* sure I remember seeing horns whenever I heard this live (always a bit shaky, but I guess that's the price you have to pay for Viennese horns in such a long work).
     
    That's the Solti recording with the Wiener Philharmoniker, by the way, so perhaps it's the special Viennese horn sound that threw you off.

    I love how Dimitri Tiomkin uses the horns almost as if they are chiming bells at the end of The Big Sky (the video should start just before the bit I mean).

    Well, I don't earn a living from composing (although i had a couple of gigs in the past), but I would like to.
    Anyway, I will see into it, and probably upgrade my RAM to the possible largest for my system.

    At this point it's too late to expect anyone here to take any questions you ask sincerely, as you've been filling our forum with garbage posts for a year now, and take any opportunity you can to insult the members here

    What are your sources indicating Giacchino hasn't invested in upcoming risky projects?  I literally attended a seminar with him last week where he introduced the composer he donated his fee and themes for someone getting started to do the score to An American Pickle.  If you don't like the way he funds underfunded projects that is your problem.  I have in fact benefited from how generous he was to young people bringing us on to major projects he was working on.  He has a reputation of hiring those who don't get an opportunity like his recording engineer Dan Wallin on many big projects who wasn't part of the hip crowd and not very fashionable to hire and is now 94.  His team was full of first timers and last timers who were struggling.  He takes a chance on untested people and offered me orchestration, arranging, and conducting opportunities even when I argued against it.  I was very nervous conducting and quite inexperienced and he and his team said go for it and take the chance even when they were over budget and getting considerable pressure to record faster and lower the music budget.   That is the supportive environment he nurtures and it's extremely rare!

    That is nothing at all related to what I was talking about, which was re-recordings, not nurturing new composers, which it's great that he (and others) does. I clearly shouldn't have mentioned any names.

    karelm got a reaction from filmmusic in The Orchestral Sample Library Thread   
    I love Berlin Brass but they are very resource heavy.  I think the same with spitfire.  Great sound but you need lots of RAM and good HD (like SSD).  To get the very best results with Berlin Brass, you'd probably load up each individual player (so rather than something like "solo horn" and "4 horns", you'd load "horn 1, horn 2, horn 3, horn 4, 4 horns, trumpet 1, trumpet 2, trumpet 3, 3 trumpets, trombone 1,..." so that puts a ton of load on your system but has great realism.  You might want at least 128 gigs of RAM* and/or maybe a slave computer.  * I will caveat and say others get good results with less RAM so it might also be that I just don't have a very new computer but just say that you need lots of heft for these modern libraries.  @Datameister makes a good point, most people who have these high end libraries also have a wide range of other libraries because none does everything.  For example BBC Orchestra is good at a classical sound but doesn't have so much heft.  Berlin Brass is good at bold and brightness but Spitfire might have more in your face presence.  None of these would be great at Big band, etc., etc.  But Berlin is my go to library but you might have to supplement any library with something else.
