Started as a divertimento for strings, but evolved quickly to a full orchestra piece with horns, winds and percussion. Three short movements: Pre-dawn, Sunrise, The Land Awakens

You packed a lot into 6 minutes
A veritable mini symphony. Lovely changes in texture and clever orchestration.

Daybreak is a perfect title.

Twinkling highlights
All of those solo entries are so full of energy and pleasantly appealing. The general mix of instruments strikes me as well-considered in the whole scheme of your programme, each section serving the entire picture you're trying to create. I do very much like the low drone in Part I which you use so effectively at the beginning of this movement. Movement II: nice pizz strings and gentle woodwinds to signal the day's arrival. Movement III: I wasn't sure where it began...or if it did. I was waiting for the 2nd mvt. to play itself out...and I guess it did.
All in all, this is a really ambitious work and the result is a most-pleasant and satisfying listen. It was delightful to hear it.
