The orchestral marches respond exceptionally well to my early percussion treatments for Beethoven MP3 recordings. In particular the Marimba and Steel Drums let you hear the Military March in a really new ways. The colours of the new world instruments create a different atmosphere for and emphasis to the music. This is highlighted in the Turkish March where Hammond organ, Harp and Bells are added to the instrumentation.
It was with considerable treppidation that I approached the Beethoven Symphonies but as you can hear the application of New World percussion and wood wind instrumentation to these revered classics has produced some interesting and entertaining effects. Beethoven's third symphonyknown as The Eroica was originally dedicated to Napoleon Bonapart. It was a ground breaking symphony - much longer than most of it's predecessors with Europe wide warfare as a dominant theme. The Fifth Symphony is seen as a central part of Beethoven's work and our interpretation brings out the delicate rhythmic developments which play such a strong role in this symphony.
