DAMN. Now that was fun! 

Hi Saul,

This is indeed a lot of fun. Very virtuoso playing and well recorded.

There is however one small detail in the high register of the first violins: they have a very strident attack as if there would be a high harp or the-like playing along. Have you used some kind of compression on them? I would definitely lower the attack values. It really sounds unnatural.

For the rest a splendid and enjoyable composition!

Hi Jos!

Thanks,

Well the string section with the harp like sound in the first movement was done on purpose to me it sounded natural I thought it added charm to the piece I could take it out if more people feel the same way, its completely editable.

Thanks for your feedback!

Of course that's entirely up to you and your taste/purpose. But I can't imagine orchestral violins playing that way...

Ok this is the second version of the concerto.

Kudos for Jos for bringing out a very good point.
