Rawdanowicz Rhapsody

Author Comments

Originally written for a friend, this short piece is one of very few solo pieces I enjoyed writing. Writing this reminded me that as much as I tend to overlook violins in an orchestral context, I certainly have a soft spot for their use in folk music.
Notated in Sibelius 7 and produced in FL Studio using solo violin samples from EWQL Symphony Orchestra Gold and Intimate Piano from Orchestral Essentials 2

First off What and how???
How did you make those strings sound elegant??? This is some very impressive work! I can see you took some inspiration from other classical music. like around the 01:04 mark I don't know why but it sounds very familiar. Also that piano does a very good job at complimenting the strings.
I can really see this being used in a silent film. Also I don't know if you meant to due this but there is a random note at the end lol it just seemed off to me. Anyway great work man!

Thanks for the thorough review! This is probably one of my less classical pieces actually, the intention was more of a celtic/English folk sound but it's easier to emulate that sound in a more joyful context than a flowing, mournful one, so I gravitated more towards classical melodies in the middle section. Also you're not hearing things, there is a note that's off towards the end; it's the correct pitch, it's just that the sample included in EWQL was from an open string, which - at the FF dynamic - can sound a bit nasty depending on your taste.


I think this song could be used in a film. Very nice, make more music !!!



The VSTs here are very convincing! Develops very nicely and despite being brief this piece does tell a story. Horses galloping, or some quite dramatic scene in a movie... Anyway I enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing!
