Very charming. It would be interesting to see the score. I will say it wasn't even halfway done and I was thinking it was long winded. You have lots of great ideas and techniques, but the unrelenting triplet rhythm and relatively limited dynamic range make this a bit like driving through Kansas at 90 miles an hour. Sure there's a lot to see and and it goes by fast, but overall it's much of the same view. You've been quite inventive in your development yet there's still a lack of drama. I would edit this to about half it's current length or find a way to amp up the drama, maybe both.

I'm sure others will have different opinions. In general I think you have some great ideas. Your opening theme is marvelously charming, but the triplet phrase that answers is long and the bass part staid. Then we don't hear a repeat of your marvelous opening phrase for too long. The opening phrase is very well crafted. The accompaniment is flexible and varied, features that are lacking in much of the rest of the piece. Build on what's good and do more of it.

You've got some obvious ability and skill, there are many places in this piece where you show great creativity. However if I hear triplet 8th notes accompanied by dotted half note bass for the rest of the day I may commit murder (just kidding!). You've shown you can do better so stop using filler. Take out all the filler and you'll probably have a great piece.
