First time composing something like this ! I was both excited and nervous when I first tried composing for a classical orchestra (not a big one soz guys). This was actually a father's day gift for my father. Hope you guys enjoy it and can give me some suggestions !! 馃檪

Oh, so you聽can聽write for woodwinds. Where was this guy in the聽Sea Symphony?

This piece... phenomenal! So much movement, so much emotion, so much Mendelssohn. Either you've listened to a lot of his music, or he has been reborn as you. Either way, this was some fantastic orchestral writing right here.

I do have a couple of suggestions. You might have a look at some orchestral scores to get a better feel for how the woodwinds are typically scored. Most orchestras have two or three wind players to each instrument (the same goes for brass), and they'll often write聽divisi聽passages for them, or notate them as聽a2聽if both parts are playing in unison. Nothing a little research can't fix!

Also, transpose. That trumpet is playing some awfully high notes... not sure if playing a high C# (B natural untransposed) is feasible with such soft dynamics during the menuet section.

Also, the arco/pizz fiasco strikes again. You know what to do.聽馃槈

But overall I was overwhelmed. I loved how you brought back the menuet passage and used the other theme (or its variation) as counterpoint. You seem to have a good mind for hearing how things will sound with the different voices of the orchestra鈥攁nd that is a rare gift, indeed. I find your music quite refreshing. Please, keep making more!
