Jos Wylin replied to Saul Gefen's discussion The Wanderer Meets the Princess
"Just wonderful, Saul.  Is this a live performance? The pice is well built up and put down carefully, so nicely. A small remark is perhaps that I hear some disturbing reflections in the highs and rather much reverb overall. But these are only…"

"Hi Ronald Lovely piece, for sure. Unfortunately the chord accompaniment is a bit dull and the harmony is not always adequate. The recording seems pretty much OK and the flutes are brilliant, as well as their interweaving play. Maybe the percussion…"

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,

Kjell

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. :)
