Special Woodwinds

Die Verlockung klanglicher Raritäten

Diese Vienna Instruments Collection ist ein Sammelsurium von exotischen Kostbarkeiten im symphonischen bzw. orchestralen Kontext. Ein Großteil der Instrumente ist zudem schwer verfügbar und damit umso wertvoller.

special wind collage de

Ein besonderes Juwel ist die Bassflöte, die die Flötenfamilie mit ihrem samtigen und erdigen Klang im tiefsten Register erweitert.

Mit der Oboe d’Amore gewinnt die Oboenfamilie ein lyrisches und klangvolles Instrument dazu, eingespielt vom erfahrenen Oboisten Markus Deuter, der auch für die French Oboe der Vienna Symphonic Library verantwortlich zeichnet. Das Heckelphon mit seinem dunklen, expressiven Charakter rundet die Oboen in der Tenorlage ab.

Auch die Klarinettenfamilie der Vienna Symphonic Library erhält mit dieser Collection zweifachen Zuwachs: durch das warme, füllige Bassetthorn, das die Alt-/Tenorlage abdeckt sowie durch die kräftige, sonore Kontrabassklarinette.

Special Woodwinds - Instrumente: Bassflöte, Oboe d´amore, Bassetthorn & Kontrabassklarinette

The budget priced Vienna Special Edition (SE) lets you test VSL's wares without breaking the bank. SE is an 80GB (53.5GB when installed) compilation of instruments drawn from VSL's vast sample database, which runs solely on the Vienna instrument engine. A snip at £230, the standard version contains solo and ensemble strings, 13 solo woodwind and brass instruments, three brass ensembles, standard orchestral percussion, tuned perc, the fabulous Vienna hard, a celeste and an eight-octave Bosendorfer grand piano. In short, a working orchestra (including a pianist with very long arms) lacking no significant instruments.

SE's extended library offers a large number of very useful extras : scaled-down 'chamber' strings, supplementary solo woodwinds and brass, woodwind ensembles, the cinematic 'Epic Horns' and three solo saxophones. A harpsichord, classical guitar, a hairy, overdriven rock guitar and even the Vienna Konzerthaus Organ are thrown in for good measure, along with sustains and staccatos from VSL's ever popular, lush Appasionata Strings. Everything but the kitchen sink, and I wouldn't be against VSL sampling that at some point. (See http://vsl.co.at/shop/articulationsspecialeditionnew.htm? for a full listing)

The patches are cut down versions of their Vienna Instruments equivalents, with fewer velocity layers and samples, spanning a tone rather than a semitone. Despite this, I found little difference between SE's 14 violins and the full VI version; the non-chromatic sampling had no detrimental effect, and having three dynamic layers rather than four was something I could live with. The same isn't true of the Bosendorfer - three velocity levels simply can't do justice to an
acoustic piano.

Though blessed with a comprehensive instrumentation, SE offers relatively few performance styles - potentially a problem if you want to recreate a full orchestral score.

But alongside the no-frills deliveries (typically, sustain, staccato, and sforzato, plus detache, temolo and pizzicato for the strings) you'll find the wonderful performance legatos and 'Bollywood' portmanteau slides that other sample libraries can't touch. Now that the Pro Edition and Horizon series titles are discontinued, Special edition is the only single VSL collection capable of creating full orchestrations. That alone should make it a serious proposition, but whether you factor the superb musicianship, beautiful close-up sound an legato samples, SE begins to look like a must-have product. For those already hooked on the Vienna Sound, the latest trio of Vienna Instruments offer some mouth watering (if somewhat specialised) additions. Special Woodwinds (31GB) has five new, rare instruments. The bass flute sounds beautifully warm and breathy, especially in its sumptuous low register. Played in combination with strings, it creates a psychoacoustic effect akin to being wrapped in cotton wool and dipped in warm caramel. If that thought makes you feel amorous, you might fancy a quick tottle on the lovely oboe d'amore (a warm exotic-sounding reed instrument reminiscent of a cor anglais, but with a slightly brighter tone). Sounding like a bass oboe, with which it is often confused, the hecklephone is stunningly expressive and lyrical, and one of the nicest sounding woodwinds in VSL's collection.

Musicologists will be pleased (English football fans less so) to see the Basset horn included. To the untutored ear (of which I have two) it sounds like a clarinet, but this instrument has a more penetrating one, and sounds more assertive that the rather retiring B-Fat clarinet in woodwinds 1. If your looking for depth, check out the might contrabass clarinet: its practically subsonic low register sounds almost electronic, while its upper range is clear and rotund: a
sonorous, melancholy timbre. Perhaps as a nod to brass band enthusiasts, the 22.5GB Vienna Instrument Special Brass includes a cornet and euphonium, both played with pinpoint accuracy, The cornet provides subtle alternative to solo trumpet and is fast becoming a favourite with VSL fans. The euphonium (a type of tuba) and alto trombone extend their respective instrument family's high resisted by a fourth; the latter plays some great slides which track intervals of up to six semitones. While these instruments have their uses, most people will be interested in special brass 'fanfare Trumpets'. Designed to complement the eight player Epic Horns, the new section features six unison trumpets with a fat, slightly chorused sound. There crescendos and sffz performances are a knockout and will add great brilliance, power and sonic majesty to orchestral arrangements.

Playing a real harmonium involves non stop pedal pushing, but VSL have banished the leg strain on their 8GB Special Keyboards by sampling eight harmonium stops, ranging from a plain, hymnal bourdon to the multi-octave wheeze of "Grangjeu'. We can now enjoy long sessions of this folksy Victorian reed organ without coming away feeling that we've been man marking `Chistiano Ronaldo'. SK also features a harpsichord (here given its Italian/German name
'Cembalo'). Only three stops are provided one on them couples a high octave to the fundamental pitch, making that bright, crashing metallic racket I associate with Iconic 1960's TV themes. Say 'prepared piano' and you can bet your life someone will say 'John Cage' the being the name of the zany American Chap who first inserted erasers, nails, wire , paper and so on between the piano strings (perhaps as a protest against childhood piano lessons?) VSL haven't exactly followed Cage's Preparation instructions, but they do have an extensive fiddle about inside the fortunate Joanna, totally messing up its sound by inserting chains, screws, foil and glass in the strings. In addition to the resulting set of jangly industrial percussive noises, there are delicate harmonics, zither-like stick hits and some nice spooky glissandi. All good fodder for the creative composer's sound palette, and recommended if you've a couple of
hundred quid to spare.
