I finally got an audio interface for my computer and have finally preserved something I thought was going to die on some fragile magnetic media: my final project from orchestration class from my long-ago days as a music major. Despite the fact that it’s a college orchestra on their second sight-reading (and, ahem, not taking it all that seriously), I think it still comes across really well. My one regret: doubling the violin with the trumpet. Sure, Franck did it, as my prof instantly noted upon hearing it, but it ends up sounding very 1930s movie score to me, instead of 1920s modern composition, which is more what I was going for. I think I did it pretty well apart from that, though.
See what you think. It’s Alexander Scriabin’s Prelude in G minor, Op. 27, No. 1 for piano, orchestrated for full orchestra by yours truly.
