What do you think about this piece?

Hi, my music school just emailed me telling they've made a local Summer Competition which deadline is the 1st of September, basically this competition consist of composing a piece which is 1 to 2min long (it doesn't matter which category eg. Piano solos, Orchestra, etc...), and the winner will win 100 Euro to spend in Music books and a free year of studies.

So i've made this little piano concerto with strings that is about 1:20min long.

Could you tell me in comments what to change/improve and tell me if you liked? That would be really really appreciated! :-)

Updates: Finally finished this Concerto and i'm sincerely so proud of this! Hope this win althought there are very good composers in my school, so yeah let's see for the results in September! Thank you all for the support you gave to me!!

My Vivaldi score, seen used in the wild

Hello Strings,

I just wanted to share that a (not great) engraving I made of Vivaldi's cello concerto RV 407 years ago (when I had been doing music for only three years) is being used in this professional performance, as I managed to deduce after peering at the first violin part on the concert master's desk:

This is pretty cool, because I made that score and made it freely available on IMSLP so that it might be played more often. It used to be on musescore.com too, long ago, but if I upload it now then the playback and layout are all different. Anyway, here is the IMSLP link:

Fun Bass Songs?

Our group's got a Tim Foust/Avi Kaplan-level bass singer, and we're trying to find some arrangements that give him some room to really shine. He can pretty easily hit E1's and up, and with a little effort can rumble down to I think F#0 was our last measure. But we're really just looking for something that goes lower than E/D2. If anybody has something it'd be great to possibly see it!
