"Hey John! (are you on composersforum.com also?)

"Two composers l love and listen to on the regular, Ravel and Mendelssohn 
Two composers who I don't listen to but they know the craft, Webern and Berg.

Chad Sir Wick Hughes replied to André Aaslie's discussion Authentic vibrato in the string-section
"i typically try to avoid MIDI strings all together.  They just don't seem to give me that "vibrato" like the real thing.  I usually get a quartet.  Trust me! It's worth it!"

Chad Sir Wick Hughes replied to David Stowell's discussion New piece for Wind Orchestra :- It's a mirage, Igor
"2nd Reply on the composition.
As I said earlier, you obviously know what you are doing and it is clear you have a respect for penmanship and melodic development.  This is a very strong piece.  It isn't much I can say about the composition itself…"

Chad Sir Wick Hughes replied to Ariel Ramos's discussion August. Piano Quartet
