Great piece here. You did a great job with the piano and I really liked the riffs you played. Although it could be a bit more varied, it wasn't the center of the song so it worked pretty well. It gave flavor to the piece. I also liked your choice of instruments with the violin and (the strummed instrument - be it a guitar or another one). It worked well and gave it a "European" feel (French or Italian -ish). I don't know if that's the right description but hopefully you get my drift.
The violin, while being nice, I do wish it was a different software instrument. Although, you usually can't help that if you're on a budget and can't pay out your butt to hire an actual violinist like we would all love to. To me, it sounds like the violin goes from quiet to loud every stroke, and sometimes you really want to make it sound as if the violin is being stroked on the bow continuously. You might wanna open up the sampler and try fooling around with the attack and/or release times (most likely the attack). Then again, it might just be a personal preference.
In terms of the idea behind the song, I really got where you were coming from. Not only is this an interesting concept but it really shows through in the song. I feel as if a character in this song really is making some choices that involve the weight of his world being put right onto his shoulders. Being innovative and actually working towards progress is something that very few people can really attest to and this song fits very well with that theme.
All in all, I really enjoyed this piece. I think (for me) if you fixed the violin, it'd be a great masterpiece. Awesome job and keep some pieces like these, be they inspired by philosophy or tales of epic proportions, coming for all of us to enjoy.
