I absolutely loved this piece. I have been wanting to become better at arranging classical pieces, but it's difficult to do. I really need to find where you get these sample packs because the ones that come with FL Studio just aren't cutting it anymore.
Anyways, my ranting aside, I really enjoyed the way the song changes as it goes on. However, it changes very slowly. It ebbs and flows, rather than changing quickly, and that technique really works in this song. The subtle harp going on in the background is enchanting and relaxing. It gives that slow, meandering feeling that makes it sound coastal, exotic, and overall beautiful. The string composition is also very well thought out and it works well with the song.
My only qualm with this great piece is indeed the mixing. I agree with BlazingDragon that it could be spiced up with a bit of repaired dynamics and fixing of the tones of the instruments. If this song was given a "warm" kind of mix, with some "bright" thrown in on some of the instruments, it would become a ten in my opinion. I highly suggest finalizing this song to your standards. It may take a while, but this song would be a true gem if you mastered and mixed it completely.
Also, the absolute favorite part of the song for me is that short, quick little harp ending. I love the little "riff", and I think it's perfect how it ends on a seventh chord. What a great idea. This would be a great film score, and I imagine that the rather sudden ending would conclude the scene that it was accompanying.
I rather like this piece, and I am now checking out your other works. Great job!
