Hello, I'm new here. This is my first work for orchestra and probably my 3rd ever composition. I've been working on it for a while. It's going to be performed in a few months-what do you guys think? First rehearsal was today (I'm in the orchestra) and it was really nervewracking. There's a bunch I would probably change if I could go back, but it's pretty much set in stone for this orchestra. \
There's clear influences from Mozart, Beethoven, and other composers. I think this work lacks maturity or individuality, and my teacher says I need to work on developing my own voice as a composer-but I'm very interested to hear your opinions.
Thank you so much for listening!
PS if you're wondering about the weird orchestra-I wrote this specifically for my high school's symphony orchestra and we don't have every instrument which is quite restrictive
