So this uploaded this piece a couple of months ago (original in the archives). I have added an another movement, and I think I can say now that this work is pretty complete (barring some minor revisions). Impromptus are collection of short orchestral pieces that I have written (on a whim basically) in the past year and a half. They consist of short movements each with a unique mood and form. The 3rd movement (the Berceuse) was inspired by a theme by Christian Perrotta (I'll link his original theme below). The instrumentation is fairly the same throughout the whole piece. Let me know what you guys think, and thanks for listening/commenting!

I like your music very much, Danish. I remember this from before, especially the beginning open fifths which I must have commented on... The new Tarantella is not as good as the preceding movements. I mean it's good, but it needs to be less whimsical and much more relentless. No pauses, no reflection. Damn the torpedoes, just drive! Now of course I'm talking empirical Tarantella.  You've added additional elements that - it could be argued - make it less effective in that regard.

(I'm going through the exact same thing with my Humoresque with Sojar) You try to add a little something to a style or offer a unique angle to it, and people complain that it's not "what it's supposed to be." So, IMO, your 4th movement should be more visceral and muscular, being the climactic last movement. Though as I said, is good music as is.
