I wrote this many years ago (heavily influenced by Abeniz) but only now have got round to recording it. I used to play the (real) violin, but not any more: so I've had to settle for a software one.

American Waltz
Intriguing music, has a bit of turn-of-the-century American flair, I like it.
The violin sounds great... the vibrato is a teeny bit too regular, which
gives away its sampled-ness, but I can hear some of the spots where you
turned the legato on and off, giving it a lot more realism. I am very aware
of that, having written my own waltz with a violin part in it, sampled
violins just don't measure up to a real violinist! Anyway, this is very nicely
written. The piano is a little muffled sounding, and has a hard time
competing with the violin though, you might want to bring the piano
forward a little bit in the mix.

"I can hear some of the spots where you turned the legato on and off"... actually I didn't, I just played it on the keyboard. However I did phrase it as I played, and having once been a (sort of) violinist helped. The balance seems about OK on my wide-range hi-fi speakers, but, yes, on the small computer speakers I should perhaps have brought the piano up just a tiny bit.

The "fake" violin sounds very interesting! Almost like a harpsichord? I
don't know how to describe it. One of the many great benefits of
computer recording, creating and endless array of sounds!

Very nice
The piano sounds very good. This is a good arrangement for sure.
Responding about sampled violins is always the same, but this one
sounds for sure better than mine!! Good job on this production

It's charming; a very enjoyable piece of salon music. It definitley would
sound 100% better with live performers, but, as a composition, it is
most enjoyable and very well put together. Drakonis mentions a turn-
of-the-century American sound, and I agree; I actually hear a bit of
Scott Joplin in here. Lots of interesting harmonic twists; kept me
interested all the way through.

Good work.

Joplin in Buenos Aires?
I love Scott Joplin. It has the ring of him, perhaps when (imaginarily) he
visited Argentina and combined his music with Carlos Gardel. Beautiful
melody. I would love it even more if you record it with a real violin!
