This is NOT a solicitation for your business. All I am doing is putting out feelers as it pertains to high quality music for our productions.
As we all know, one of the most frustrating obstacles we face is finding suitable music for our video projects. Once in a while someone suggests using the classics—Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Moussorgsky, Stravinsky, Bach, et al (think of Kubrick). Although the music is in the public domain, the performances are not! Therein lays the catch.
So here are my questions: If there were a high-quality source of the classics made available as royalty-free music, what would you be willing to pay?
What classical pieces would you like to see made available? Bach’s Air on the G-string is one of the first that came to my mind. Maybe Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major. Anything in the public domain you can think of would be appreciated.
Here is a sample of the quality I’m talking about (this music is copyrighted). This original piece was composed for a little patriotic film I did a couple of years ago. It was based on Yankee Doodle and has the feel of Aaron Copeland with a hint of John Williams. Keep in mind the music has been compressed to mp3. It will take a little time to load.
Anyway, I would certainly appreciate your input!
