Orchestration Online Challenge 2019
« on: September 03, 2019, 10:43:20 AM »
I entered Thomas Goss's Orchestration Online Challenge again this year.
 
The subject was Mussorgsky's piano piece The Seamstress.
 
As always, it was a lot of fun. I made a few dumb errors, which Thomas spent a lot of time pointing out. But his advice was as usual non-judgmental, to the point, infinitely useful, and extremely generous.
 
For anyone interested, my entry is at 28:21 on this YouTube link:

Jer, congratulations for brilliantly representing the forum there, year after year. :) T Goss spent a lot of time talking on notation/engraving issues (actually, he did the same with other submittals, too) but close to the end he realized what he had done and emphatically repeated that he found your submittal very successful...and indeed very successful, it is, I think, really very nice. Thanks for letting us know.
