Great piece Klaus, really good use of the orchestra and you really brought the themes to life, while adding some good thematic variation which effectively developed your theme in such a short time.
The thoughts I had while listening to it which were constructive were as follows. Your mixing is solid and I felt that you really knew how to approach it which is great.
I would have liked the piece to reach a climax as it’s all very Mezzo Forte and never really hits thats Fortissimo which we were longing for. Your dynamic range was great apart from that. I think you simply needed more harmonic variation and longer to really fully develop that piece. Though as I said earlier you did well in the time you gave us to develop the themes as you did.
Harmonically it’s mainly just 1 chord which is fine, and your contrapuntal parts add accidental harmonic variation which works very well. In parts though you could add more variation by creating faster staccatissimo passages that push through a fast progression into the next section.
All in all though this was great, especially seeing as you said it’s your first attempt at the genre!
