In memory of Ennio Morricone, a string orchestra arrangement of Cinema Paradiso, transcribed by me into Finale.
To celebrate the completion of the Jazz Improvisation class I am taking, I have arranged Olhos de Gato, by Carla Bley (one of the pieces studied in class) for orchestra. I have created a string backing for the melody, then added the melody from “Memories of Tomorrow” (another piece studied in class) as a counterpoint, and also my own melody as a further counterpoint. Finally, I created a new ending, based on a descending harmonic progression.
This is the same arrangement as previously posted, but this one is converted to MIDI, loaded to Logic Pro X, and revoiced using the EWQL Symphony Orchestra Gold. Final mastering in Logic Pro X and Ozone 5.
Incorrectly ascribed to Guilio Caccini, this work was actually composed by Vladimir Fyodorovich Vavilov (Влади́мир Фёдорович Вави́лов) in 1970 and featured in his album “Lute music of the XVI-XVII cent.” (Лютневая музыка 16-17 веков) released on the Melodiya label.
I listened to the original recording, transcribed it to Notion, then rearranged it for woodwinds, strings and harp, voiced using the EWQL Symphonic Orchestra.
Transcribed and orchestrated using Notion and EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Gold.
