"Thank you for reviewing the work, H. S. I see I will need to develop this work as a concert piece at some point. Outstanding suggestions for future reworking. Solid. Thx"

"You have some interesting ideas, but upon listening to it, I found them inadequately developed.  There's a lot of repetition, and a lot of what sounds like "filler" material.
That initial ramp, for example, leaves a lot to be desired.  I'm not 100%…"

"Hi, James... This is obviously only my personal opinion on listening of course but it doesn't seem to go anywhere.
To my ears it just follows one line all the way through without any kind of change with regards to how it made me 'feel'.
All due…"

"Thank you, Ingo. 
I appreciate the time you took to listen and comment. I don't have a problem at all sharing my scores or works. Besides doing my due diligence on securing copyright after each work, sharing is how we learn, gleen new ideas and even…"

"This is quite well done IMHO James because it is accessible and engaging and will appeal to a wide range of people but it still has some nice counterpoint and development to catch my jaded ears as well.  Sure you could do other things with this but…"

"Thank you for your feedback, Patrick. I appreciate it. I still have a little tweaking to do on the written score but it's basically done. I see your comparison to the beginning of this film work by Morricone. I deeply respect this composer's work,…"

"I really liked the composition! It is very original and very well written! The mood of the melody is felt throughout the timing. The beginning is similar to the beginning of the melody from the movie "Professional"…"

"A most valid point. Those of us who managed to get performances with less than perfect resources or who started their own ensembles with the huge admin that usually took probably have a different approach.
The problem has been sample houses with…"

"I'm old school. When I started composing you wrote for what you had at hand, which for me was piano or wind ensemble. I have a couple of orchestral libraries lying around, but don't feel that my ideas are big enough to warrant those forces. It's…"

"Thank you for the feedback, Victor! The work is indeed for film so that may give reason to the staticness of the piece since it was written to cue. I think I like your musing on working equally as well as a string quartet - I'm going to try that…"

" Is your release for any specific purpose? Taken purely as music I find this piece smaller than it look on paper: you're not using the full resources of all those instruments. I'm willing to bet this would work equally well as a string quartet.…"
