Two orchestrations of the same composition: vintage vs contemporary

    Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I am looking for feedback/critique of my composition and 2 different approaches to orchestration.

    I called the first version of orchestrated track "Remembrance" and it is done in a more vintage and traditional classical style.

    Another orchestration of the same track has different phrasing and a more contemporary approach; I called it "Adagio for strings".

    Which version in your opinion works better with this composition? Cons, pros? If both of them work, is there anything that can be improved (voicing, phrasing, tempo, expressiveness, dynamics, etc).

    Thanks in advance for taking time to listen and comment!
    Here are the links:
    Remembrance (Hollywood strings library was used)

    Adagio For Strings (Cinematic Studio Strings was used)
  2. To my (untrained) ears Adagio for strings sounds way better (the music not the title ;)). The sound it smother and mellower which works better with your peace and this is also true for the legato transitions. I think there is to much dynamic after every chane or rebow of a note (I hope you know what I mean) in Remembrance.
  3. Thank you for your feedback, Martin.
