Jos Wylin replied to Saul Gefen's discussion Concerto for Strings In A major
"Hi Saul, Impressive work. The string orchestra has a very realistic sound, although set in a rather overwhelmingly hoge ambience. What I miss is some variation in playing techniques. You've mainly used the percussive bowings in all sorts of…"

Beethoven, Serenata Op. 25, Menuet

Dear friends,It's been a while... My mother is slowly passing away (90 years) with cancer. So I've been busy with caring tasks and supporting her during these days. To distract a bit from this sad occupation, I reworked in detail an earlier mock-up with the simplest tools: 3 VSL instruments, the Vienna Suite convolution (Schubert Saal) and tail reverb. That's all.This is a sonic pre-study for a new piece (for viola, cello and flute) that comes next.…See More

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I've been composing since I was 10. I had an education as teacher of music and I functioned in high school as teacher general musical practice, musical history and analysis. My second diploma was teacher Germanic languages (Dutch/English/German). I was the musical leader of a chamber orchestra during more than 20 years, with which we did a number of recordings (CD, radio, television). My interests in music can be situated mainly in the field of baroque, classical, early romanticism and genuine folk music, although I sometimes write more modern scores (but not contemporary music).

My musical examples are: Jean-Philippe Rameau, Georg Philip Telemann, Josef Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Richard Strauss.

My musical preferences: baroque and classical music, early romanticism, genuine folk music.

Genres: 17th, 18th and 19th century dance music.

Genres written so far: concerto, fantasy, overture, suite, symphonic poem, rhapsody, chamber music, songs, music for a stage play, ballet, folk dances

Further: many arrangements for small groups (classical and folk)

Hi Jos,

now we are better friends than ever.

Did you post a contribution to the Dance Contest? Your Ballet may be a contender.

Cheers,

Hi Jos,

It’s fastlane(Phil) from the defunct Garritan forum. I’m glad to see you on here. I became a member years ago but I haven’t been active for some time.  The prodigal son returns I guess. :)
