Fresh Air and Warmer Days


Ludwig van Beethoven loved being out doors. When not composing, Beethoven spent much of his time taking long walks through the country. Beethoven’s Symphony no. 6 in F major, also known as the Pastoral Symphony, is his tribute to nature. Read more about what each movement signifies. Join me in playing Beethoven’s Symphony no. 6 in your headphones this afternoon. 

This weekend, we join Beethoven in celebrating the great out doors. I’d love to hear what fresh air and warmer days mean to you in the music you create this weekend. Post a link to your music in the comments section below (most of us use SoundCloud to share these compositions). I’ll share your composition on Monday and throughout the week.

You may remember how our challenges work if you are a regular to the Garritan Weekend Challenge. If you’re new to the Garritan Weekend Challenge, welcome! This is simply a chance for you to practice composing and using Garritan sounds so when your next big composing gig hits, you’re well rehearsed. You can share your music in the comments section below or publish your tune on SoundCloud. It is a great opportunity to have other composers review your work. Most of all, it’s fun.
