Flower Waltz

Any recordings you have done that could be described as Classical, post in here.
Includes pieces one would only loosely call 'Classical' as they depart somewhat from what the composer intended.

Tchaikovsky Flower Waltz done as a big band arrangement. As usual multitracked and mixed in Cubase Pro.

That is a very busy piece! And with the syncopation you have put into it I had difficulty even finding a 'one, two, three'. But with that straight 'waltz beat' in the middle I did finally get the hang of it. You must have had at least 50 multitrack sheets to put into this one. Very interesting to listen to, though!

I reckon that most of the petals must have fallen off the flowers by the time you got to the end!

It's all about the music. Yamaha AR 80 Player.

Hi Tony,

A great piece for you put together, and well worth the effort you must have put in, just out of curiosity what do you use ?
keyboards, or a Computer and Vsts ? or external sound module and midi keyboard , would be interested to know

Hi Tony..A lot going on there. Some great big band sounds. Not a tune I am familiar with but enjoyed it. Never multi tracked perhaps something to look into. John

Hi Tony
Absolutely terrific multittracking arrangement.
I think if Stan Kenton was still around , he would
have considered hanging up his baton
Very enjoyable listen
