My first attempt at writing for a full orchestra. It's nothing complicated, but I enjoy it and hopefully you do too. It's also kind of short due to technical issues that made me just want to finish it asap.

Criticism always welcome.

DAW: Cubase 8
Strings: Berlin Strings, Spitfire Sable Strings (for divisi)
Brass: Cinebrass
Woodwinds: Berlin Woodwinds
Percussion: LA Drama Drums
Piano: Galaxy Vintage D

Sounds like a lot of cinematic pieces I've heard before, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Try experimenting with different chord structures. Other than that, you've made fantastic use of your synths, and they sound very nice together. I can't imagine how much time it must have taken to write.

Transitions are quite nice, though chord changes are very predictable in the main theme. Overall, however, the piece accomplishes what it sets out to do. Production wise, watch your high end. What sounds like a trumpet or horn rings in my ears a little bit on both of my speaker systems, as well as studio headphones. Otherwise, good work. Your use of timpani was what initially grabbed me. Nice!

Thanks for the request!

I like overall composition ,but as for me : a structure a little bit boring... I think You should look more on music forms and see how to ge from there. I have this problem also... Melody is pleasure sounding and have development,but you`re not getting something new into song buy just playing same melody on the different instruments, check some Sviridov`s work for an examples.

Somehow missed this review. Sorry!
Anyway, I have always struggled with development. It is something I am currently working on a lot. I'll have to check out Sviridov.
Thanks for the review

Great job! It's pretty good. ;)
