"Was the score written with Notion? The style looks familiar to me. It seems pretty much OK to work with, although conductors prefer grouped notations to minimize the full score. Jos"

Pierlala Again... Tribute to a free mind

This is a score for extended symphonic orchestra.There is an explanation for the title on Youtube. The main theme is a popular tune that appears for the first time in the 12th century. Every new appearance has other lyrics, but the tune is more or less the same. My Pierlala character is situated in the 18th and 19th century. His rebirth has to do with the French occupation of my country and the Brabant Revolution (1830) that ended in the beginning of the new state Belgium.See More

Jos Wylin replied to Timothy Smith's discussion The Restitution
"Hi Timothy, With interest I've listened to your piece. It is somewhat unusual to my classical ears (as to music, but also as to orchestral seatings, use of the playing 'space'). That's probably because you don't use a DAW to…"

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,

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. :)
