  • Pietro Locatelli's Opus 4, No. 7, Movement 1

    This is a realization of Pietro Locatelli's Opus 4, No. 7, Movement 1.

    It's scored for two solo violins, solo viola, solo cello and string orchestra. I used Solo Strings I Full, Solo Violin 2, and Chamber Strings Full.

  • That sounds just about perfect!  Trills sounded very natural.   What a cheerful piece also.

    Hi Leslie Sanford,

    This sounds Amazing. very realistic, natural sounding, I also like the overal acoustic treatment.

    Any info. on the acoustics/Reverb used here ?   

    Very well done. 

    Thanks,

    Thanks, William! I love those performance trill patches VSL provides. Very natural, like you say.

    Locatelli is a little bit of a recent discovery for me. I've been aware of his work for awhile, but I've just recently delved deeper into his music. His entire Opus 4 has been a revelation to me. He's definitely a first tier composer.

    I used my Sanford Reverb plugin for the reverb with a medium sized theater/room. I recorded the piece using Reaper with each track panned to slightly different locations. I didn't want to pan too much because I don't like the sound you get when one section seems to be coming from one side of the room.

    Hi Leslie Sanford,

    Thanks for the feedback.  Is the Sanford Reverb plug-in something you developed for yourself ? never heard of it if it is available commercially, is it ?   It sounds very natural and transparent to me. Very Nice ! 

    Cheers,

    Thanks! It's a VST plugin I developed years ago. Not nearly as versatile or realistic as MIR, though.


  • Beautifully done. Congratulations on this excellent work!


  • Hi Leslie,

    I'm so fond of baroque music and the lightness or playfulness of Italian baroque is always a feast to my ears. When it comes from a skilful person as you are, it's even more enjoyable. It is indeed a very realistic and natural soundig performance. As the audience, we're sitting in the front row experiencing every single detail.

    Fantastic work! Thanksfor sharing it with us.

    Wonderful!   I am not familiar with this particular piece of Baroque music but I think Locatelli would be satisfied.  Of course if he discovered a machine was playing the music he'd be doubly amazed.  Nice job!


  • Unless you're hearing and/or seeing this performance live it really doesn't get any better than this. Very well done Lesley! And that reverb sounds pretty natural at least to my ears.

  • Simply outstanding rendering and performance. Hard to believe that this is a virtual recording. 

    Sounds like the instruments were in room!

    I am sure this is going into the VSL demos.
