Robert G. Nagel replied to Antonio Freixas's discussion Wind Quintet: One - Review, Critique, Suggestions Wanted
"VERY interesting. I'm no critic, so I'll just make this short. Using the concert pitch version you have provided, in the first measure, I would give the oboe the Eb, move the clarinet down a step to the Bb and give the bassoon the E natural below…"

Greg Brus replied to Robert G. Nagel's discussion Syncing Music to Video
"What... I use Finale 2007 and it shows the exact time it's at during playback, at all times. Did they decide this functionality is too good to be true and so has to be removed, or something?

Robert G. Nagel replied to daryl sprake's discussion the reason why classical music is dying
"Daryl, you don't think that Beethoven created compelling and inspired music?? You've GOT to be kidding. Does a new more inclusive attitude mean distortion guitars and wailing away on a fiddle or fusion drums or mixing in MIDI with a live orchestra…"

"Bob Porter, you are right and I was wrong about film music. No, it is not the same. I don't know about "snob music" terminology. That seems to call into play tuxedos, corsages and Mercedes Benz. Is it possible that classical music calls for an…"

Robert G. Nagel replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion I Just Ordered New Toys, Um I meant "Tools"
"Thanks, Rodney. I have never used a DAW to compose, just Finale along with the Garriton Personal Orchestra. Not sure how I would convert my  thinking to just using a DAW to contain all the voicings of a full orchestra and experimenting with which…"

Robert G. Nagel replied to daryl sprake's discussion the reason why classical music is dying
"I am no expert in modern symphonies or what they play. I live way out in the country  and there are certainly no opportunities around here to attend a concert. Maybe fiddles, but no orchestra. But I do have satellite TV and enjoy watching movies.…"

Robert G. Nagel replied to Isaiah Jackson's discussion How to get better at composing
"Tchaikovsky's "Guide to the Practical Study of Harmony" is in print again. I have found it to be a good resource in addition to Piston's book. Also, I have found it very useful to download a symphony along with its score and then follow the score…"
