Le Farfalle (With BBCSO Core)

edited January 21 in Share Your Music

This is my first post on this discussion thread...

This was originally a piano piece I wrote many years ago (over 20 years ago) which I decided to have a go at orchestrating using Spitfire's BBCSO Core. The solo violin is also Spitfire - from their Solo Strings.

Hope you like it. Please let me know your thoughts.


  • Hi there, welcome!

    I love the combination of timbre of sounds there - the combination of the glockenspiel and woodwinds contrasts by the warm cellos on my right and the violins on the left.

    Took me a while to notice the bassoon hiding behind the cello lines, a very nice addition!

    This is a great piece! Thanks for sharing!

    P.S. I do not have core - but do they have pre-programmed string runs, or did you record that yourself?

  • Thanks for the feedback. I wrote the runs myself using the Legato patch with portatamento to give it that sliding feel.

  • Bravo! For the first time here, it's a success!

  • Thank you!
