Vivaldi, Winter, Four Seasons (Allegro), with animated score

The first movement of Antonio Vivaldi's "Winter" (from The Four Seasons)), performed by the orchestra of the US Air Force Band. FAQ Q: Where can I get free sheet music of this piece (opus 8 #4, RV297)? A: Here http://tinyurl.com/vivaldiwinterscore Q: Where can I get this recording? A: Here (right-click this link to download it): http://www.usafband.af.mil/shared/media/band/USAFB_Winter.mp3 or, that doesn't work, try this: http://musopen.org/music/piece/415 Q: How did you get the animation synchronized with the recording? A: First I entered the score into the notation program Sibelius. Then, I made a half-speed version of the recording (with the Amazing Slow-Downer software), and adjusted the notation to match (added the ornaments, shortened notes, mistakes made by the performers, etc). Then, while listening to the half-speed recording, I recorded a MIDI click-track. Finally, I fed the score and the click-track into some software I wrote, which adjusted the timings of score to match the click-track. The adjusted version of the score is what my animation software takes as input. Q: Is there a way I could make the bar-graph scores myself? A: The Music Animation Machine MIDI file player will generate this display; you can get the (Windows) software here: http://www.musanim.com/player/ There are lots of places on the web where you can get MIDI files; I usually go to the Classical Archives site first: http://www.classicalarchives.com/ Q: Why don't you show the notes of the harpsichord? A: There are various reasons, some aesthetic, some practical, some conceptual. Vivaldi did not write a harpsichord part; it was the practice at the time for the harpsichord player to improvise a part from the bass line. The notes of the harpsichord are often harder to hear than the notes of the bowed strings, so it would have been difficult to transcribe them from the recording. In a large ensemble like this, the role of the harpsichord is akin to the role of the rhythm section in a large jazz band, in which the pitches aren't as important as the timing, holding the group together. And the notes of the harpsichord aren't as interesting visually as those of the bowed strings. Q: Could you please do a video of ______? A: Please read this: http://www.musanim.com/requests/
