    I'm thinking maybe to try setting up some longer term tension and release/resolve for a more dramatic arc. I think it would make the narrative stronger. You do have a lot of shorter term tension/resolve. Maybe try mutilating the theme and reassembling it again in a different key or something. You have a lot of nice themes. It just sounds a bit too safe to me. Bach, Mozart and Beethoven didn't play safe, which separated them from the rest of the pack of their respective periods. I think you are very meticulous and more ambitious with longer works (unlike me) and it would be a shame.

    A nice piece, reminiscent of the Brahms clarinet quintet. I'm wanting a stronger and more contrasting second theme, if possible. That could help with the previous comment as well! More of this woud be welcome.

    Bravo Swosh! Wonderful sonata movement. Your grasp of form and pacing are excellent. The coda section is truly brilliant. You succeeded in creating a satisfying ending, which is a difficult thing to do. Like KenOC I would compare this to Brahms, but it would be interesting to know who you consider your primary influences.

    I enjoyed the short piano solo section, very natural and characteristic for the piano. I am looking forward to hearing the rest of the composition.

    Very nice, indeed! It's fresh to my ears, but I haven't heard the Brahms work referenced in other posts.
