This is an app that lets you play concertos with an orchestra that follows your tempo. No more playing with recordings that lock you into a fixed style.

It’s called Cadenza and it’s on Kickstarter right now. There’s a Mac version but the Kickstarter is for the iOS app!

Thought a lot of people here would be interested :)

"The Imperial March" - John Williams

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scBO3Hwj3Ks Here’s my first post.  I am a freshman cello performance major.  For our first concert at the end of September, we played Brahms Second Symphony.  This was my first performance as a college musician.  And I wasn’t nervous at all.  We were so prepared, especially compared to what I was used to from high school.  The last movement is my favorite; it sort of ends with a fanfare which essentially starts me off on the rest of my college career.
