Just as the virtual ink on the virtual blog paper i’m writing on about Davids last post has dried, he sent me another little cracker of a track.
This time it’s Bach’s BourrÃ©e #1 from Orchestral Suite no. 2. Short and sweet and sounding very nice indeed, being played on the Native Instruments Pro 53 soft synth.
This is what he says of it :
“For this fast-paced piece from Bach’s second orchestral suite, i chose the Native Instruments Pro53 software synthesizer (emulation of the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5) as the logical continuation from the Moog Modular on the Gavotte (suite #4 in Bm).
Even though the Pro53 only has two oscillators, a single filter, I was able to coax some very nice sounds from it, naturally tuned in Werckmeister III-tuning for maximum authenticity.
The continuo (improvised chordal and ornamental line, typically played with a harpsichord) is one of my finest yet, I believe. And it was fully improvised in one go to guarantee that taste of synthetic authenticity you just don’t find these days ”
Nice work David,Â keep it up !.
