Classical Music Ensembles

On this site we employ a range of different ensembles to replace the original classical music ensembles for which they were composed. More details about the range of  classical music ensembles can be found at Wikipedia. The backbone of our New World ensembles is a synthesized steel band which stands in for violins and violas, ocarina and pan flutes for the woodwind and Marimba for cello and double bass.  Special percussion such as bells and timpani are reproduced by specific synthesizers when they are required.
Faure's Fantasie No 1 Mozart Piano Quartet K478 Rondo:Allegro Faure's Barcarolle Beethoven's Turkish March
For piano, organ or harpsichord pieces we generally use other percussion instruments such as the marimba, vibraphone or a harp.
JS Bach's Toccata No2 in C Minor BWV 911 Beethoven's Bagatelle No2 Scarlatti's Harpsichord Sonata K531 Allegro
JS Bach Fugue in E Minor 'Grand'
Brahms' Hungarian Dances No 6 Chopin's Mazurka Opus 24 No 1 in G Minor

Ragtime Music Ensembles

Ragtime music was originally composed and published for piano. Subsequently there have been many arrangements for Jazz ensembles of various sizes and shapes and also for guitar solo or in a few cases guitar duet. It was some of those guitar arrangements that first sparked my interest in rags and rag time. Over the last several years we have developed percussion ensembles involving steel drums and marimbas, subsequently introducing Balinese Gamelan Gongs and other drums. Here are  some examples of the different ensembles:
