"Very pleaseant piece, with a real dialogue between instruments,
and a strong and recognisable theme that comes up after suitable
modulations. So, a nice and well-balanced piece.
Too bad the panning adjustments have not been set up, and that some
existing voices seem to be missing on score. However, an excellent
mastering of the software, especially in the tempo variations,
empowers this piece with an undisputed

Only two items, that don't harm the piece, have to be reported :
the last measure only lasts one beat (there is no grace note), and
a music start barline is missing. Congratulations!"

"Panning effects are well used, which is rare
in this contest session, even though the topic (a duet) is

"A pleasant piece, even if the clarinette part in the first
movement lacks a bit of originality and surprise, by simply
modulating on the piano chords. But the other movements put things
back on track."
"Very nice piece, even if we can't call it a Sonata. The sound
space is well used, and the rendering is very pleasant. A score end
barline should have required a score start bar."

"Varied and entertaining piece, but that would benefit from more
rhythmic or key modulations to create an element of surprise from
time to time. A few mistakes on the score, otherwise quite well
designed. For instance, why using piano pedal symbols for a guitar?
A more marked sound
spatialization between the two instruments would also contribute to
interesting piece, that benefits for a well-built writing. Only the
last part lacks of expression because of the a missing cadence.
