The large Vienna Instruments DVD Collections are the most powerful orchestral virtual instruments that have ever been developed. The collections, divided into the various instrument categories, offer the complete playing styles of the respective instruments with which you can achieve the highest quality and most authentic results.

If the oversized widescreen Hollywood sound is required, then you are definitely right with the APPASSIONATA STRINGS. You can achieve epic breadth and passion in expression with the Legato or Sul-G Performances in various vibrato strengths. But even “action-packed” passages are no problem for the 20 violins, 14 violas, 12 cellos and 10 double basses (including six 5-strings!) Thanks to the differently accentuated interval tones, staccatos and spiccati. While APPASSIONATA STRINGS I already covers a wide range of articulations, APPASSIONATA STRINGS II is dedicated to the lyrical “con sordino” variant (with mute). Some composers even double their "normal" string sound with the "con sordino" playing styles in order to achieve maximum warmth and breadth.

Included collections : Appassionata Strings I & Appassionata Strings II
