Hi

I like this kind of pieces that resemble classic style but are fresh. Particularly, the work with dynamics is excellent.

The music flows nicely and the parts are connected softly, good development.

Great work for horns. Some of your cadence points are a little bit off, like 15-16. They might go on just a bit too long. My other "note" would be the rather stark lack of dissonance in the piece. Makes it seem a bit flatlined when the dramatic arc doesn't suggest that at all. Your 4th horn part is also a hefty load.
Nice job.

I usually dont enjoy so much of this kind of style of XVIII, but I havee to say that I think you know how to write for french horn and how they work togheter, because sounds really "easy" (in a good way) and balanced. I think you should think to add some movement! At least one slow and "deep"(?) Would be great.

As I have the opportunity to listen to brass music frequently, I have to say this is absolutely on par with new pieces performed by professional brass ensembles in my country. Here and there I would have made different choices, but these are purely subjective. And this could easily be the first movement of a small cycle (divertimento, suite, or whatever name you prefer and fits).

What helps is that new brass music has the freedom to be far more eclectic than e.g. orchestral music where the limits what is acceptable new music are far stricter. Classical influences, jazz, atonality, folk music can all be mixed and matched for a new piece, even renaissance, baroque and world music.
