I've listened twice.It's soooo beautiful and catching. I love the melancholic atmosphere and the natural rubato feel of the theme. A very balanced orchestration as well! Nice rendition. Only superlatives for the composition, orchestration and recording.
If I may be naughty a couple of small remarks. The main balance is pretty much to the right. Second: the bassoon starts at about 1' and plays totally out of the orchestra, as if the player were in the audience. Did you forget the convolution for the bassoon? Or is it another library not adapted to your overall reverb settings?
These trifle remarks don't diminish in any way the beauty of the piece. It was a pure joy to be in your audience in the first row.
Right from the start, I really enjoyed this piece! Certainly melancholy, but it had no trouble catching my attention immediately. I agree with Max's remarks about the bassoon sounding a bit close, but it certainly did not diminish the quality of the composition at all!
The ending is very soothing as well, very nice to end on an uplifting note (so-to-speak).
Thanks for the kind comments.
I do not wish you to suffer through again, but I changed the piece, because of your advise.
That is the greatness of your reply to posts, you help and gently criticize, and that is what we need.
Thanks again, and if you can, listen again....
