Here is an orchestral piece I wrote that I kindly ask for feedback on. In particular I am looking for musical and notational feedback, rather than "sonic" (how to use Garritan more effectively). Any comments about the orchestration, themes, pacing/form, etc. are welcome.
And if you don't have time to listen to the whole thing, it's fine if you pick one movement and comment on that. The movements are quite self-contained.
This was written for a woman named Karen Friedman who every day speaks effortlessly with eloquence and poetry. She inspired me to create some art.
This is the first orchestral work I have completed (there are several incomplete ones floating around). The piece took about 90 hours of work over the past three months. It incorporates musical ideas from many eras, primarily classical and impressionist.
First movement: molto allegro
Second movement: adagio
Third movement: allegro, andante
