Fantastic! I registered just to comment on this as I'm looking to do some score analysis of this work. I'd love to see some behind-the-scenes details. The interplay between the different orchestral sections sounds very good and I love the woodwind programming (Stravinky's forte).

Are you going to tackle the rest of Part I?

Just a question about the opening C in the bassoon. It sounds like there is an overtone that dominates as the note swells (it has a flute-like quality). Is that part of the sample?

Thanks :)
yes this is part of the sample, I have intentionally done very little EQ because I wanted to use and test spitfire audio samples capabilities as it is out-of-the-box and as a result I am pretty happy of the usability of such libraries.

I just had an issue with the trumpets from symphonic series at minute 5h40, and have instead used 4 individual trumpets from the studio brass professional library.

I don't plan to do more than these 6 minutes, also because the rite of spring is still under copyright protection till 2050, so there is little value I could get out of it :)

Dang it Stravinsky, why'd you have to live so long???
Joking aside, this is so awesome to see. Very well done.
I did short little excerpts of some orchestral pieces a few years back. Nothing this comprehensive though. Makes me want to do some more though. Nice work.

Thanks!

the experience in itself is very useful, in my case my ending goal as a composer is to write music for orchestra, render it digitally and publish it, so being able to go as much as closer to reality is a key exercise.

I will do more like this, but next time I will choose a composition which is in the public domain :)

Very impressive. Congratulations !
I'm also impressed at how SA products can deal with such a great range of tones & articulations.
Looking forward to watching behind the scene too.

Wao, that was a joy to watch and listen. Such an amount of work. It sounds great...

If I may, I wanted to ask you a question regarding the woodwind extensive run parts there are in this piece. How did you programmed the flute runs? Did you used legatos or staccatos? I've been working on a piece with extensive woodwind run parts and, I think I am doing something wrong; because I can not get the Spitfire Symphonic woodwind flutes to sound realistic enough in fast runs. The legato sounds kind of muddy in my piece and with the staccatos I found it worked better.

I know the run lines are not supper exposed in this piece, but, Just wandering how you made them.
