This is my second composition and first for string orchestra. Here is what I have from two days time of work. - String Orchestra Recording

I'm not really sure where to go from here with this piece. Should I bring back the main melody? New melody? End it where it is? etc. I'm new to the composing world so all the input I can receive would be great. Thank you for your time.

  • Thank you Michael and Bob for your comments! They are greatly appreciated.

    I think I'll start a second movement like you both have suggested. 

    @Bob Haha, well, I'm actually a pianist and violinist. Is the simple melody carried in the first violin section what gives the impression that I don't play violin? If so, I'll definitely try to be more adventurous with the second movement, thus being more difficult sounding.
