David Arditti is a composer of music in the European Classical idiom. His works include vocal, orchestral, choral, brass band, wind band, piano, and chamber music, plus scores for film and video. He also plays the piano, accompanies and conducts. He can be commissioned to write music for any group, and also for film or other media.
This is a new rendition of Ceremonial March No. 1 (Op. 45a) using Note Performer virtual instruments with Sibelius 7.5, @ David Arditti. This is as yet unperformed. Any orchestras or conductors interested, contact me. For instrument line-up see here.
The earlier rendition was produced with a combination of software and hardware instruments, but this is entirely software and at least as good if not better.
Such realisations also have the benefit of being far quicker to produce.
I will be playing a new short work for piano entitled Moment Musical in a convert given by London Composers Forum at 12 midday on Friday 6 March in the church of St Mary’s, Putney. The concert is free with a retiring collection. Other composers in the concert are Andrew Glynne, Ann Wolfe (who sadly died last year), Janet Oates, Laurence Glazier, Martin Jones (pictured with me below), Peter Terry, and Tony Matthews.
I’ve now uploaded a recording of the synthesised score of Ceremonial March no. 1 (Op 45a).
This is played from Sibelius 7 using in general Sibelius sounds for the strings and a hardware synth for the wind, which I think gives the best result.
For some reason the recording goes a bit poppy at the end. I’ll fix that when I have diagnosed the cause.
Clarinet in Eb
2 Clarinets in Bb
4 Horns in F
3 Trumpets in Bb

My three-movement Suite in C for solo guitar (Op. 43) will be played for the first time by Dennis Cooke of Lauderdale Guitar Society on Friday 20 September at Lauderdale House, Highgate, as part of this concert, which also features other new works.
