I like the ostinato in the bassoon (great sound too). The melodies are beautiful as well, but I think some notes in the bassoon ostinato clash with the melodies.

Indeed there are nice countermelodies. Very good that you use ABA form! This gives the music more structure. Very satisfying!

The piece has generally three sharps, but the Bb clarinet will need to play two extra sharps. Which gives this part five sharps. You may consider to write for the A clarinet, resulting in no single sharp.

M.14 & m.18. Do you really want to habe the oboe play so low? The notes can sound pretty disturbing.

Mm.39 - 47. The flute part is too low to be clearly audible. It will probably be over-loaded by the other instruments playing forte.

You write nice parts for all members of the quintet except for the horn. I am sorry to say, but the part would really bore the hornist and he has the right to. You can do a lot more with the horn. When played by a decent hornist, the horn can be as agile as the bassoon. The beautiful sound is actually never applied. You should definetely improve this part.

What is the piece about? I hear some humour.

Overall well done, but orchestration is an area thay you still have to explore (more).
