This is a VGM Challenge review. I'm sorry for the long wait! Some unfortunate things happened in my life lately.
The intro sounds innocent and blissful. The piano has a clean, pure quality. I imagine the main character peacefully wandering around a frozen lake. I like the way some orchestral elements are introduced before section 2.
Section 2 and 3 sound like uplifting battle music. The ethnic woodwind combined with traditional orchestral instruments doesn't make me think of the Northpeaks environment in particular; however, I do imagine a large, natural environment, which is appropriate.
For the most part, I like your approach to mixing. The mix sounds wide, spacious, and fairly clean. I can tell you are conscious of the mix during the composition stage. Your use of percussion is excellent; it complements the rest of the composition rather than acting as a foundation. This shows that one doesn't need gargantuan percussive hits to produce epic-sounding music. I like the use of soft timpani hits to add some weight and accents.
There is one problem that relates to both the composition and mix. There is a lack of focus throughout the piece. Most instruments sound quite distant, and the instruments playing important phrases and melodies are not at the forefront of the mix. I suggest adding some soloists and/or use a higher close-mic mix panned relatively close-to-center. When the string section is playing staccato without much backup, I suggest layering soloists on top of it to achieve a more defined rhythm.
I think the piano outro begins slightly too soon.
I had a lot of fun listening to this! Keep up the good work :D
