ORCHESTRAL REMAKE | "Beethoven's 5th Symphony"

41 ratings | 975 views
By far, the boldest remake I have attempted to do — recreating the most iconic music piece of all time, "Beethoven's Symphony No. 5." This is the first movement of Beethoven's most famous piece of work. I wanted to stay true to what experts believed to have been Beethoven's intended tempo, close to the tempo of the recording performed by the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Carlos Kleiber in 1975. As for adding my own tastes to this masterpiece, I dared not to do too much. (After all, this is Beethoven. The Master.) I told myself that I would give myself one, and only one, "boom" that I can add. And so, I've selected the most crucial, most intense moment of the piece (see if you can find it). If you are new to classical music and just want to jump straight to the most exciting part, just jump to the "coda." Exposition: 0:01 Development: 2:48 Recapitulation: 4:14 Coda: 5:42 Listen to the original recording of "Beethoven's 5th Symphony" by the Vienna Philharmonic (conducted by Carlos Kleiber) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMHVVeZmm4I If anyone has any requests for remakes, COMMENT below!

*My computer's RAM and CPU probably would've committed suicide before completion.* This sounds mighty #staggering.

J Haha thank you my friend! Indeed, my computer was very angry at me, and hence I needed to buy some upgrades 😊

Oh gosh this is terrific! Only the woodwind section sounds a bit weird, but the rest is amazing!

dude this is so awesome, and it proves that you can get a really great sound with the old Gold Eastwest Libs.
Kenny Mac Composer (5 months ago)
Thank you my friend! Yes! The old EWQL libraries are actually pretty good still! As long as you select the right mic positions and mix them well you can definitely still get some darn good results

This is actually really good! Especially nice job on the woodwinds, I can never make the Hollywood Woodwinds legato sound convincing :(
Sparkly Snarf (5 months ago)
May I ask which patches you used? I saw that you used the Oboe Leg Rep articulation at 4:27 for example, but when I play these woodwind legato samples, the attacks and slurred transitions always sound very awkward and harsh.
Kenny Mac Composer (5 months ago)
Thank you, I appreciate it! Yes, the woodwinds definitely gave me a bit of a challenge for this one, but after tweaking them around for a bit they pulled through =)
Johann Sebastian Bach (5 months ago)
Now try me ! Btw, what was your process of blending in Cinematic Studio Strings with the EWQL sounds?

Бабах
Armin Gutjahr (5 months ago)
wow Bach :O
Kenny Mac Composer (5 months ago)
HAHAHAH! Should the day come where I am bold enough to add Bach to my remakes, I will glad do so =) Blending CSS with EWQL varies from project to project but for this one in particular, was mainly about making sure the strings sat in their rightful place in the stereo spectrum and boosting/cutting the right frequencies to get the energy one would expect from listening to a Beethoven recording. I had to listen to several recordings of Beethoven's 5th (SFS, BSO, Vienna Phil) to have a better idea of how the strings needed to sound as opposed to just replicating the usual string sounds heard in trailer music, film/game scores, etc. Hope this helps!
