This is a work completed last year and touched up today.  It represent the hustle and bustle of Manhattan in the morning.

All comments most welcome.

It just sound so good. Interesting setting with three strings and a clarinet - they blend together nicely.

The melody in the clarinet, the string accompaniment, very tasteful, soft and airy - I feel cultivated. I like the harmonics.

What software are you using for audio?

The ending seems a little abrubt, like something more is coming. Maybe you intended that feeling? Anyway, other than that I can't find anything weak with this piece.

I liked the inconclusive ending. It made me feel an emotion that is very abstract and hard to explain. Its as though the person walking the streets has arrived at work but sighs because its a dead end job.  It made want to listen again. The whole piece describes the busy impersonal city streets and how there's an orderliness to the chaos really well. Its both beautiful and ugly, I love it.

Thanks for the review ..... I really like this work too .... I'm going to devote a bit more time it.   There are a few places I would like to have a bit more consistency of mood and flow.  The original work was written for a dear friend a french horn player ... who passed away before a friendly performance for our orchestra colleagues.
