End Of The Road - 2021 Orchestral competition

Hello everybody!

This is my submission for the 2021 orchestral competition. The three families I used are Strings, Brass and woodwind.

This is probably my biggest work so far so I hope it doesn't violate any rules of the competition haha. This is my own work and it is completely original. No vocals have been used unless you count flutes haha.

Here's a list of the instruments used:


Wind:

Flute x3

Oboe

Clarinet in Bb

Bassoon


Brass:

Horn in F x3

Trumpet in Bb x3

Tuba


Percussion

Timpani x2

Drum kit x2

Piano


Strings

Violin (lead) x2

Violin x4

Viola

Violoncello

Contrabass


I hope these pass as an orchestral format. I used the woodwinds as the lead alongside the two violins so that the melody doesn't drown in the sea of brass and strings. This is a style I've done before but just not to this scale. If any judges or normal viewers are listening, hope you enjoy my piece. Good luck to all other competitors. May your music speak into the hearts of the judges!

I’m super late and didn’t even review this a week later until now. I think I can hear panning within the instruments, specifically with the flute, which is arguably the main instrument. The melody is nice, but it would have been nice to see a little variation in some way between the first and second high points. Meanwhile the background is a masterpiece; the chords are very nice indeed and, while remaining mostly static, have enough flair and added instruments near the end to negate it. I also like the intro and the bridge, perhaps the bridge is a little too long, and its transition into the final part is abrupt, but maybe that’s by design. Great work.

Tangerine responds:

hello there

This piece sounds so great! I love the intensity it has near the end! Very nice!

Tangerine responds:

Thank you! I really tried my best for this one haha. I feel I slightly rushed it though

nice piece!

Tangerine responds:

Thank you! I worked really hard on it. I'm not used to going this big, so it's kind of a step out of my comfort zone.
