I hope to get a little more views to make it more popular and to know how good it is. If you comment please say how good your knowledge is about music, so that I can know more about the comment (not really good scentence but you know what I mean).
Im no music critic so I definitely cant tell you how good or bad it is. But. The first three minutes (on you first link) is almost the orchestral version of the House of the Rising Sun, and later I hear some contemporary pop music references that I had a bit of a struggle to enjoy since I expect orchestral music a bit more celebratory and full of classical influences rather than things I hear everyday on the radio. Otherwise I think its okay.

Your music makes me think of that time of the night just as the earliest faint hint of light starts to permeate the dark sky,... or when you are far in the north in summer, and you can see the faintest light beyond the northern horizon...!
...or maybe something like the first stirring of something about to come into existance....like an afterglow, but a 'preglow' if there's such a word...!
I Googled the word 'ecclectic' to see if that was a word to describe your composition, and 4th down from the top I came across the term 'Ecclectic Wicca',...and coincidentally, it goes along with your Lord of the Rings idea...:
'A polytheistic Neo-Pagan nature religion inspired by various pre-Christian western European beliefs, whose central deity is a mother goddess and which includes the use of herbal magic and benign witchcraft'.
Interesting sound you have...! Definately imaginitive...!
Vladimir Horowitz I'm not (he's my fave),...but I have played piano since 1993. I have a 1918 Heintzman & Co. upright baby grand. My neighbour at the time was/is a Royal Consevatory piano teacher, and I traded piano lessons from her, for my giving her son drum lessons.
I have played drums since 1978. I've got a black 10 piece Ludwig kit (6" through 18" toms) with lots of Zildjian and Sabian cymbals, and various whackety-whacks...!
I listened to several of your compositions on YouTube and am liking them big time...!!!
I'm puzzled, how can something so 'cultured' go together with something so degenerate as poker...?

@demodawggy: Thanks a lot for the beautiful comment! I appreciate that you like it, I know it doesn't have to do anything about poker but I want to get a little more popular. If you want/can: Could you let your neighbour listen to it as well? Maybe it would really improve my compositions.
@bowie1984: I know it does sound a bit like the house of the rising sun, but I thought when I do in another pitch, another tempo, with other instruments and some other notes that it wasn't really the same anymore. By the way, I really didn't think of the house pf the rising sun until someone else said tye same to me.
Heres the thing, its nothing wrong with it. Rising sun is an old folk song and heavily influenced half the decade worth of rock and roll in the last century (not mentioning every other blues and black spiritual songs that - the Rolling Stones and the other hundred of rythm and blues - bands stole right away). But again my problem was with your composition, that I didnt hear much classical influence in it, so it was something else that I was expected. This wont make it a bad experience or anything, its just my own stupid habits about listening music I guess.

That could be right, but the word classic is very wide (a lot of meanings): compare beethoven, mozart, chopin and filmmusic is classical too! So it isn't a wrong interpretation, but the word is not enough to discribe the song.
