    Lovely themes! I like the passacaglia style progression, some care will be needed to avoid formula or repetition. Voice leading is not terribly clear, but the overall effect is nice. That's a great 20 minutes' work! Looking forward to more...

    I like :).... are you also a woodwind player?

    you can take a tip from Bach and start one of those repeating lines on 5 of your scale rather than 1.... leads you into new stuff easily!

    I like this piece, not bad for 20 minutes work and not a lot of theory ie only one semester. The first version was good but did not develop as much. The revised version is much better, works well. Nice idea from Jeaniesing re net oboe, sadly I am piano followed by saxophone, not much help there then. Sorry!

    I was going to quibble about the oboe range in bar 14, but my memory failed me. The register may be somewhat awkward though, he says backpedalling. :)

    I like the change in development. The jumpy theme breaks the somewhat somber mood you've previously set. Perhaps that's intentional. But I like the potential you've set here for a good piece. One more tiny suggestion if I may, the tone of the piece makes me think of a quieter beginning, perhaps building as the dynamic unfolds. Looking forward to more...
