    OK, I gave up second guessing myself. Time to own it. This is the piece now, I don't have any more plans for it.

    Your No. 8 is better than 90% of waltzes in the "classical" repertoire. Roughly equivalent to Sviridov's Snowstorm. I am not joking. Keep up good work.

    just found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Phg2dGZ2sPQ

    Feeling even more ashamed of my bass writing. I wonder how much you can rely on an orchestral bass section to play stuff like this.

    There's a difference between writing for string bass and writing a bass line. I was speaking to the latter.

    And what one writes for the string bass players in an orchestral work is often not as challenging as what fine string bass players soloists can do.
