This track creates a very specific mood which is always good in classical music. Due to my personal preference id prefer a longer song with a couple more paraddidles here and there with some plucked instruments or violins, but that wont factor into the score. The drums give a nice backbone and are toned down when it sounds right, transitions are damn near perfect and all the long sounds add a very epic feel and fill sonic space so this deserves a 10.
Beginning of a journey?
I don't know if you were going for this but it sounded like the beginning of a movie or video game when a big adventure is about to start. The EQ sounds very well done, you can hear everything when you're supposed to and there's a good use of dynamics. The only thing I can really criticize was that the melody didn't really change much, but even that's not a bad thing. Very nicely done.
