This is another one of my "sunday orchestral pieces" that I write in a day, compose in a day. Enjoy. More of a clockwork-type beat here. I like it.

Your songs are all very very nice. I like it to hear. Too bad that it will stop after few minutes ;)

Long ago, I used to write a bunch of dance songs in a day. But it seems that you have quite an interesting talent to be able to create such good music in the time frame of one day. I must say, I am impressed.

I feel as though I'm sitting on top of a mountain with an elder whilst drinking tea in the morning and discussing how things were in the past. The view of the horizons are enough to awe even the most stubborn individual.

This music is a testimony to your greatness, sir. I do hope that you will continue with your efforts.

Love the mix of piano and strings, however cliche. The strings coming in at 0:27ish are nice and well orchestrated, although I feel as though something is missing... perhaps you need a legato english horn or cello motif/counter-melody somewhere in there before the melody comes in on violin/viola sectional (something light and heartfelt). 1:32- the brass can do something more than simply quarter notes. Perhaps create a counter-melody "answer" set that they reply to the strings and such.

Another thing to try would be adding light timpani here and there, as well as some nice low strings to balance out the mix. Don't be afraid to add more instrumentation and try some variations where things drop out and other instruments take up the lead, perhaps in new keys and so on (I can imagine some really sweet counter-melody stuff on piccolo involving quick notes and tremolo here and there).

Keep compos(ed/ing)!

I like it too! wish it were longer. this one may be worth investing one or two more Sundays :) Well done.
