You fit a good range of mood and texture into such a short piece. I liked the interaction between the clarinet and the cello.They juggled the melodic line nicely.  Also, you have a nice and unique use of harmony.  

My critiques will are:

1. It sounded like you had two unique themes (one at the very begining, and then at the Allegro in measure 9) it would be nice to hear more development on one or both of those themes, because they could be very strong melodies. They do stop rather abruptly. 

2. The section in the middle where the piano takes over with the 16th note runs, it sound a bit empty with the clarinet and cello just sorta stopping. You could probably add in some pizzicato with the cello or staccato with the clarinet, to back up the piano just as the piano backs up the clarinet and cello.

But those are just my thoughts, take them as you will. Very nice piece overall and I look forward to hearing more!

Thank you for the reply, ironically i am a piano player, but i struggled with the piano the most in this piece, i found it hard to really bring out the melodic nature of it when accompanied with the cello and oboe, that is something i need to work on for sure.
