Ok, I had to turn up the speakers through the onboard volume, and the speaker volume and winamp to hear this enough to start reviewing. Normally, that would leave my ears bleeding. Not straining to catch the details.
Worse, the song is muffled, as in, I can't hear the intricacies of the violin playing. While I understand that they are supposed to be in harmony, they're played in such a way as to dampen the detail and give me a very dry, flat sound.
I really am not catching the feeling here, there isn't enough contrast between the elements. They aren't sharp enough. Comparatively, listening to this is like looking at a blurry picture. You can get that there are details, but you really have to squint to work them out.
That's a bad thing.
The tune is nice enough, but could be a lot better. The piano could be played with a lot more depth and dynamic. And definitely with more passion, more feeling. Right now it just sounds like a bored person plunking at a keyboard. All stiff backed and with a dour expression on their face.
Give the piece a bit more power, more feeling, bring clarity into the violin playing, contrast the elements a bit more, make sure that we can hear each element distinctly if we want to while giving a harmonious whole.
Not a faint whine.
Not too bad, but you still have a long way to go.
