thanks for posting such a delightful "exercise". It really reminded me some moments of Brandenburg concertos. Here are some comments.
From 0:55 to 01:05 violin (1st ?) in the left channel suppresses counterpoint (comparing to the perfect balance in canon at 1:45! )
I loved new material - fresh triplets at 1:43. I wish their development could lead to a great culmination.

What do you think about placing one of oboes more to the right? IMO they fight for space.
