“Genius” Theme

Lorne Balfe and Hans Zimmer arranged a little competition to come up with original versions of Zimmer’s “Genius” theme for the National Geographic series this year.

Since the original version features lots of percussion and strings, I thought it would be fun to strip things down and arrange the theme for the woodwind section of the orchestra – flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and so forth. For this arrangement I used the Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds library, with the original section reverbs.
