I did enjoy you UAMH-BINN. It's symphonic but also pretty cinematic. It almost asks for some visuals.
You're getting a good sound here. I did notice that it seems to sort of get cut off at the end.
Such an entertaining frantic escape from a monstrous yet looney forbiddon cave!!
You like that bass trombone?
The rapid piano was a brave change; also enjoyed the lonely timpani area; "could hear an echo?".
Great work Fred!

Traveling to Scotland in my mind was an interesting experience that resulted in this Cave idea...lol!
Yes! I love bass trombone, especially the fat piercing higher tones!
I don't exactly remember how I got the "Fingal's Cave" idea, but I think it was the chromatic piano parts that triggered it.
Lonely timpani can create interesting moods. And yes! Added a few echo effects to the orchestra.
Thanks for having written such an inspiring review, Michael!
Gosh, I think I've got this all out of order, having gone
to the first part second and the second part first (as
far as Fingal's, that is) -- but it was well worth a
second visit to the Cave, my friend... especially with
that frenetic battiness.
The isolate timpani is a powerful mood setting device
in the right contexts -- and like you, I love getting
down in the bottom, growly, blatting range of that
Glad you enjoyed your visit in the cave, David!
I was in a special mood that day when I composed! I remember my wife's heartbeat increased considerably when she heard this music, lol!
