Tess of the D'Urbervilles 92010

Description
My new orchestration of a piece I composed several years ago inspired by the great Thomas Hardy novel (and not by any of the existing soundtracks - to the contrary, perhaps). Mostly EWQL orchestral instruments with a few JamPack sounds for the folky stuff. Let me know if you hear anything that is out of balance in any way - technically or aesthetically. Much appreciated.

All well mixed and a most enjoyable composition.

Ditto
This would work well as background music to that show, especially under the titles. Well balanced and framed work.

Nice
This was a pleasant listen, and well balanced. The only instrumentation that didn't make sense to me was the tambourine (I think that's what it was) that occurred at 2:06, but lots of things don't make sense to me, so take my comment for what it's worth. Thanks for posting.

Great orchestration
of an old favorite book of mine. I wrote my Bachelor degree thesis on it actually. Some time ago...

Liked this piece a lot, well done. If I have to nit pick(?) something, I did find the percussive element around 0.50 to sound a bit more like a kitchen utensil than an orchestra instrument, but you may have an idea about that which I just doesn't get (or my headphones are out of tune or something ;-) Maybe the outro was a few seconds too long as wekk, but you get that one for free ;-)

Thanks for sharing and stirring up some old memories.
