The orchestral marches were amongst the first
to respond 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.
The Piano works like the Moonlight and
Pathetique Sonatas and one of the Rondos have
been tackled in a variety of ways - most recently
including the use of a Gamelan orchestra with
the steel band and marimba set up. Whereas
the Peasant Dance and the G Major Rondo use
an Vibraphone instead and the Emperor
Concerto relies heavily on the steel-band for
both the orchestra and piano parts supported
by Ocarinas for the woodwind and Gamelan
instead of Brass.
The famous Rondo from the Violin Concerto
replaces the violin with an Ocarina and Flute
combination accompanied by an expanded
piano transcription of the orchestral part on
steel drums and Marimba.
Recordings like this of all nine of Beethoven’s
Symphonies can be found on this page.
