It's like waking up and looking out over a vast, foreign landscape.
Good use of traditional orchestra instrumentation. I like how you start out with the flutes playing the melody, and then switch it up to different sections like the strings and vibes and such. Having played sax in the school band, I know that's how these compositions usually go.
Now you just have to throw in some different movements ;)
In the middle, around the one minute mark, the strings playing lead should probably have a bit of a faster attack. Other than that, great job.
I suppose I could throw in a couple of different movements, but that would require extending this.
Maybe for later.

This song reminds me of a flotilla of ships schooners maybe approaching a port. It's windy so the waves are splashing the shoreline.
Like cyan11 below said, really uplifting and warm. I only wish it was a bit longer, but I realise that it would become repetitive when this would be like 3 minutes or something.
I personally think this song needs more deeper instruments. The only bass instrument you have used now are timpani, but they can't fully fill the emptyness. I think you should;ve implanted some deeper instruments, perhaps a bass or something.
I can't really give lots of constructive criticism because classical music isn't really my 'thing'. Doesn't mean I don't like it, I just don't let myself into it a lot. But I can say that this track is great, with a minor detail here and there.
Originally there was a tuba/bassoon section, but it brought down the airiness that I wanted this to feel. Didn't quite mesh, so I got rid of it.
A warm and uplifting track, makes me think of a king returning home after a long and victorious journey. Definitely worth a listen, is now in my collection of mp3's.
Journeys are awesome.
My favorite has been Last March for a long time. I was very suprised to see a new entry when I logged in today.
I love the piece very much!
Your pieces always flow so well and have such pushing brilliance to them.
I always find a reason to play your music during a DnD Campaign!
I do still write music, just not as prolifically as I used to. My standards have gotten higher, and thusly the amount of crap I've cut as "not good enough" has become a larger and larger percentage of what I do.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
