Music Composers Unite!


This is my first work. It is  a work in progress. It is the 1st movement of a 4 movement piece for small orchestra

Constructive criticism would be of great help

I like the tension in the mid sections keeping the drive. The soli's at the later parts personally feel like they lose their sense of direction, of course this is midi so it's not necessarily representative. Overall though I think it's arranged well, and in most phrases the tone would be quite strong if played by a reduced orchestra.

This reminds me of Bruckner. (I'm always finding that pieces remind me of a composer. This is the first here that has reminded me of Bruckner). It has the long, slow pace of his music, as well as the frequently heavy and dark atmosphere. With that in mind, I think it has potential. I say "with that in mind" because some listeners might find this too heavy-handed and deliberate, but Bruckner managed to achieve great things with this approach. No suggestions at this point as I need to hear more of where this is going, and this will necessarily take time, due precisely to its slow pace. but all in all, I liked it. It feels like it's going somewhere.

The dynamic imbalance at the end is a computer glitch.
