Music Composers Unite!
it cloaks itself in a nice, may I say, "baroque", atmosphere. The tension is never lost. Seeing the score would definitely be interesting.
It is a pleasant enough piece as it stands, but I think the horn is hiding too much in the background. To my mind it should have a stronger melodic presence than it currently has and should "boss" the strings a bit more.
Very soothing. A somewhat unusual showcasing of the English Horn, which typically is presented in more somber modes, but I think it succeeds.
Re: Colin's remark, it may be difficult to judge this in a midi realization. The EH is such a penetrating instrument, and it may be that Lennart has got it right. But again, these are some of the things that a live performance could shed more light on.
