Music Composers Unite!

I wrote three pieces for violin and flute in the style of contemporary classical.
When I write in this combination, the sound was easy to become a pastoral really.
I don't think that "2" and "3" are so good, but I think "1" is good.
I wrote taking care that playing is not too difficult. How about?
In concert, duet of such a combination will not be picked up?

Thank you for the advice.
Instruments of these two, I wanted to try a sound colliding in the upper register.
I'm going to write other duet of some,and try in various ways.

A moving composition, but maybe you should reconsider the instrumentation: because of the very similar ranges of both instruments and many sustained notes on a high pitch level it really takes some time for the listener to get used to it. But apart from that, good work. 

Thank you for the comment.

I can not even play instruments either. Computer has been playing this.

Just experiment with the orchestration. By the way, did you play the two instruments by yourself? If so, very well done! :-)

I have no problem with the scoring here: the lines do not seem cluttered at all to me. Nor did I have problems with sustained notes "at a high pitch." As far as choice of instruments is concerned: One might consider violin and clarinet, instead of violin and and flute, but with both instruments still playing in the same ranges, or as close as possible. On the whole, I greatly enjoyed the first one (of the three pieces), and the beginning of the second (I didn't listen much further than that). I wanted to listen to the first one several times, and even a few more times before I say anything else.
