In my mind, dwarves have the best orchestra.
Not even the elves came close, to the beautifulnes of an dwarf orchestra.
Deep down in the mountains hall, you can hear the echo of the deep bass sounds of cellos, drums, viols and much much more instruments.
And if they play the organ, you can hear it clearly, everywhere in the mountain.
Sometimes they sing to it, in their guttural language and it matches so good, with the bass sounds of the instruments.
All the sounds echoing in the mountain, makes it just more beautifuller than it already is.
Of course, they like the piece „In the Hall of the Mountain King“ the most.
And sometimes, if you listen carefully, you can hear a harp playing in the background, in some pieces.
i’ve probably posted abt this movement before but i have to practice it for orchestra coming up so here’s me saying how much of a bop it is esp. the fugal section + the triplets in the strings shortly after

today i made the mistake of going to my sister’s birthday lunch (yes, she was born on the french national day and as a child i was always jealous that there were fireworks on her birthday but not mine) before practice, and so as i ate too much too quickly i spent half of my practice time folded in half because of stomach pain. oh well.
i’m trying not to be too hard on myself — i’m on summer holiday, after all, and one hour a day is better than nothing. i also finally remembered to bring an adapter to school so i could play my orchestra excerpts while blasting the pieces at full volume in the classroom which a) was cool, b) was fun, and c) taught me a lot.
Imagine going on a rave and they bring a whole orchestra.
The singers trying to hype up the crowd: ‘woohoo’
The crowd: ‘ok fine, yeah, we partying.’
The guy with the cymbals: ‘the crowd can’t really see me but I don’t care, I’m fucking lit man, this is the shit!’
The male background singer: music beamed him into another dimension, he’s gone.
The DJs trying to hype up the crowd: ‘Hands up everybody!’
The crowd: ‘Who’s talking? The DJ? There are Djs here??? Where are they??’
The conductor of the orchestra randomly turning around at 2:27 to see what the crowd is doing: ‘You guys having fun??’
The crowd, God, Satan and all the angels & demons of the universe: ‘OMG YASSS BROOO WE GOTCHUUU. THIS IS LIIIT, PUMP UP THE STRINGS AND TRUMPETS MAN, WOOOOHOOOO!!’
You just gotta love the pure excitement in his face.
