Thanks Tebling for the feedback and glad you enjoyed listening. I agree with your comments and this is something I am working on. Sometimes I don't try to perfect the timings to help bring some human element into the tracks but if it is distracting than maybe it's not a good thing.From one "new member" to another - welcome! Thanks for sharing this, I enjoyed it a great deal. I liked the third and fourth movements best.
My only critiques would be that the first movement repeats the theme almost verbatim one too many times for my taste, and in general across all the tracks some of the timing could be tightened up a bit. Nothing to take too seriously though, this is nice work!
How long did this take in total?
Thank you Mark! Appreciate your comments. I will be posting more tracks in the near future to SoundCloud. I have about an album's full of material and hope to wrap it up soon before starting another chapter. All of the samples are from the Spitfire Audio range; their sound and tools were the catalyst and inspiraton for me to start composing again and I am thankful for that.These are great pieces! Thankyou for posting these.
I really like the sound, and the ideas, and the orchestration in all your tracks on SoundCloud. Wish there was more than just 6 of them.
Is this all Orchestral Tools libraries?
Ah... Spitfire. They sound great. Tells you how well I know the Oboes in the libraries I own ... I was listening to the one in your tracks and thought it was OT! Lol. Looking forward to hearing more.Thank you Mark! Appreciate your comments. I will be posting more tracks in the near future to SoundCloud.

Thank you Paul, appreciated.@brandowalk I enjoyed your work. I did not notice too much repetition, even after reading that complaint above and listening for it. Not saying my opinion is better, just different.
Compositionally, I think each movement is strong, and you have lots of good ideas. I do find that I personally would prefer longer movements than just 2 or 3 minutes, but that is just me.
I love the sound you are getting. I own the full Spitfire orchestra, but my results have not been as good as yours. If you are willing, can you please share your Mic mix thoughts? I am guessing that you are adding a bit more ambient to the brass, and a little less ambient for the woodwinds. But my ears are old.
I do not hear any final reverb on the entire mix. Did you use something? I also hear everything as very natural. I do not hear any of the metallic artifacts caused by too much processing so I am guessing the only thing you used is some light EQ tweaks. I do not even hear a compressor, but as I mentioned my ears are old. Would you share your mixing elements?
