solo violing isn't evolving enough for me. Too on-off. But that's the nature of sampled solo violin. To me (fair warning, a violinist) it's too distracting to really get beyond. The music: very sweet and nice thematic development. Maybe a bit too sweet for my taste. When using such traditional instrumentation, it'd probably be better to use a more traditional arrangement. The way you have independent solo instruments doing their thing somehow makes it sound keyboardish.

Nice ending with the guitar. that was my favorite part.

Same as metrobot...

The violon is too loud and linear...

Try to put more reverb? or Expression (CC11) :)
it's only a little trick..

The music is cool! i like it! :)

Thanks guys. Good points.
Yeah basically I'm a Jazzer so everything can sound like soloists with backing if I'm not careful. Bit more teamwork conciousness needed. I'll keep hacking away.

I know that it's not your fault, but those sustained violin B5 notes at the beginning are really flat - that is, in relation to the other instruments (such are the woes of sampling libraries). It's masked somewhat by the molto vibrato, but still, the central pitch is distractingly flat. Might want to look at that.
