Rowy van Hest replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion My Lament - elegy for piano
"Neither of the two renders does your music justice. I don't like to use a DAW myself, but I learned to cope with it, because the best pianos need a DAW. Especially since the embedded reverb isn't always that good. So you need a good piano vst, a…"

"This is a very nice piece Gerd and I enjoyed listening to it. I listened to both your new and old versions and it is hard for me to choose one. There are many things that can make a difference in sound quality.  Getting a good sound is as much work…"

Gerd Prengel replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion My Lament - elegy for piano
"I used a DAW for the old version (lament0) and GarritanPers Orchestra / Steinway for the new version, because the first didn't sound so well when listening to it from my PC, but good when listening to it from the smartphone and its headphone. So,…"

"I'm not sure what you mean, Gerd. Do you mean that it sounds different on your pc than on your smartphone? What system do you use to make the mp3? A DAW with virtual instruments?"

"Thank you, Rowy, I tried to follow your hints. I think it looks better now :-)
Regarding the sound I am very irritated now: When I listen to my knew version from my PC it sounds better than the old version, but from my smartphone and loudspeakers…"

Rowy van Hest replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion My Lament - elegy for piano
"Hi Gerd, autumn seems to inspire composers to write an elegy. I published mine for string quartet this week. If I may offer some advice, your score would look better if you made the distance between the systems somewhat smaller, so you get 4 systems…"

" Hi, again I improved the piano sound again by using another sound tool,  for so far I was not yet fully satisfied with the sound quality. Please listen to it again :-)

"Beautiful, as always, Saul. I love it, although it is so short. Maybe you could build in a louder outbreak as a  middle part which then calmes down again ?"

Gerd Prengel replied to Liz Atems's discussion Sinfonia Solenne for String Orchestra, Chamber Strings, and Solo Strings
"Dear Liz,
I loved your work already last year, but now even more, especially the beginning with the amazing theme and then the last 10 minutes starting at 14:15. There is an expression and transcendence which otherwise I know only from Beethoven's…"

Gerd Prengel replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion Symphony c-minor / IV. Finale Andante sostenuto / Allegro con spirito
"Dear Liz, thank you so much for your kind words on my Finale movement, yes, especially in the lyrical second theme there is a certain Schubert spirit breathing :-). Regarding the timpani Rowy and you were right, the sound got a bit muddy. So I have…"

Liz Atems replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion Symphony c-minor / IV. Finale Andante sostenuto / Allegro con spirito
"Excellent work, Gerd! I have only listened once so far, and I will confess that I was more taken with the main allegro than with the introduction, but I will listen again later on and pay more attention to the introduction. The timpani were…"

"The mp3 url doesn't work, Gerd. The text of the url is all right, but there seem to be a few extra characters in the link. I used the link on your website.
A symphony is hard to write. I think you're doing a very good job. However, the timpani right…"

Gerd Prengel posted a discussion
As you might remember I have a project to write a symphony on the basis of the fragments Mendelssohn left for a 6th symphony (mov. 1 - 2). To give this symphony an ending I orchestrated a Fugato from an posthum string quartett movement op. 81.3 from…
