My 1996 rendition of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

I really should get back to making music again. Especially as earlier in the year, Elly pointed me to an online score of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" and she translated its instructional notes from the Russian for me.

I've been bogged down in Mozart's Violin Concerto in D Major, K.218 trying to fit the horn and oboe parts in after finishing the string parts and then finding insufficent room the way I had it arranged. Being limited to only six instruments playing at any one time can put a crimp in the works. I'll probably have do a little judicious swapping of the second violins, violas and first and second oboes in those passages where the oboes are playing an octave above thye violins.

I like listening to Mozart, but his music is too fiddley, when it comes to minimalizing it; Vivaldi and Bach are much easier to do. Of course it took me two weeks of fiddling with the 'Malaguena' from Ravel's 'Rapsodie Espagnole'. That was two weeks for one-and-a-half minutes worth of music: he kept changing instruments every two bars and my having to adjust their volumes for a good blend was a nightmare. Oh well, that's done and it came out very well. And I can finish the Mozart when and if I've a mind toit.
