Well, the music its quite ok, at least  for a starter composer. I think the sound can improve a bit, because It sounds like MIDI...

 

Thank you and yes I am Abend complete starter. This ist the first orchestral track I ever did and therefore relied on free plugins where its hard to get the "MIDI Sound" Out. Appreciate your feedback

I agree with Antonio..  The music is decent.  My Dad always impressed on me, to get the best tools I could afford.  Unfortunately sound libraries get expensive. Keep up the good work, look at reviews of libraries.  https://vstbuzz.com  has some good deals.  Google something like' good deals on Kontakt libraries'.  

You might be able to benefit from better EQ'ing.  Depending on your DAW, there may already be presets.  Some high end 'sheen' would help significantly.  You've got a bunch of instruments playing in the mid range, making it a bit muddy there.  

Your ears can be your greatest teachers.  I'd download some commercial releases, or just find other music on soundcloud,  Load a different track (that sounds good to you) and solo some of your instruments with the commercial.  Try some 'gentle EQ' (notching out frequencies, bands, can be more effective than boosting others.  Try matching 'sound wise' your tracks, ignore, pitch, tempo differences.  get the EQ, limiting to 'fit'.

Arrangement wise,  playing wise, I think you are pretty right on.  The thing to focus on right now, is getting a better sound out of your equipment.  Doing good work here
