I have just finished revising a new suite for string orchestra called the Elements (Earth, Water, Air and Fire) following an initial round of comments from a few friends. Hopefully this version is a little more interesting!
Notation was made with Sonic Scores’ Overture 5 and recordings were made using the Amadeus Symphony Orchestra VSTi.

Another for 2 cellos plus 2 French horns – ready for next cello nite – Another one not played yet!
mark_jenny Composed by David Alabaster – Nov 2005
First String Quartet effort with Overture V4. Two movements now and looking more hopefull (my quartet hopes I won’t ask them to play it again!). Strong Dvorak influence inevitably!
no_moss Composed by David Alabaster – Oct 2005
For the unlikely combination of 2 Cellos & 2 French Horns. Done for Jenny & Mark – both would be cellists resigned to forever blowing for their supper! – yet to be played still.
sunday_post Composed by David Alabaster – Feb 2003
I may make this the last movement of ‘In the woods’ as I am actually quite pleased with it (but I haven’t found a pianist to play it yet).
