Listen Before You Buy
When you were on our home page you were not listening to a recording of a real quintet but a performance by a virtual group playing of snatches of the Mozart Bb Clarinet Quintet, Mvt 1 & 3. How was it done? Individual members of a well known orchestra recorded the chromatic range of their instruments and produced a library of sound. This was then used to convert the score, note by note, into a performance by a virtual quintet.
We are busy designing an e-shop that will use this technology to produce similar virtual performances for every work in our catalogue. This phase is complete and for every there excerpts that you can use to browse through the whole catalogue. When the details of a work are selected, you will be able to listen to complete performances of each movement and also download the full virtual performance free onto your own equipment
here are some examples from the more than 50 works in the catalogue Just click on the quaver to hear a few examples. These are all excerpts but but clicking on the blue name will take you to the page tht holds the full performances.
