Would be interesting to hear what Vivaldi would say about it...however, it sounds quite realistic. Sometimes a bit too perfect, but I'm sure the majority of people could be fooled and would believe in real instruments... :wink:

Very enjoyable indeed. A lovely composition, and a very spritely piece of music, very much reminiscent of Vivaldi.

Good work :)

Damn, this is an amazing composition!! :D

I wish though it would be played by a real performers though. Then it would be at least as good as the old masters. :) If not better :)

Really enjoyed this. It's great to hear something quite different (one of the best features of the Cafe).
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)

Impressive. To my untrained ears, the composition is good enough to be part of the classical repertoire.

wow...this is compositionwise very impressive. also the session strings sound quite convincing with these short articulations. I liked the small room acoustics in the mix.

thanks for posting this pearl :!:

Excellent composition! Get that recorded by a string orchestra.
