The NP rendering sounds really good to my ears, very realistic and UNelectronic-sounding as far as the timbres go, and none of the timing issues ("bloopers") that plague my renderings involving solo strings. Maybe those issues are really limited to strings.

It's late so I'll listen to your other work tomorrow... and I'm looking forward to it!

Thank you so much for listening! I'm kind of fond of those pieces. I find the NP woodwind sound to be realistic, relatively speaking. I do find their strings sound a bit computerized - if you listen to my trumpet quintet, you'll hear some solo strings. I can't say I've had the same issues you've had, but maybe my ears just don't pick up on it! Again, thank you - I really appreciate you taking the time to listen!

Quite tangentially, an old schoolmate of mine has a dream of playing the euphonium to cows.

Very nice, indeed. The euphonium is an unusual choice. You don't hear many people that say they play this instrument.

As did I, and krummholz perfectly sums up my feelings too! Bravo, Classicalgeek!

Will listen to the other one another time.

Ha! I wonder how the cows would react?

Well, I was interested in playing in concert band, and the band teacher suggested the euphonium since our band didn't have one. The school owned one, so he gave it to me over the summer along with a couple of method books, and I taught myself to play. Not too badly, I think - though my range stopped at about F4!
