Official press release
The Vienna Symphonic Library is delighted to offer this most flexible and expressive string ensemble, the Chamber Strings. Useful for small orchestrations, split string groups (divisi) or for mixing with big ensembles to create fine nuances and rich textures, the Chamber Strings will rise to almost any occasion – from Baroque to Pop. The ensembles of six violins, four violas, three cellos and two double basses allow for beauty and perfection even within the smallest musical details. All four string groups offer Legato, Portamento Legato, Detache, Spiccato and Repetition Performances, to be played with the unique Performance Tool. New playing techniques include natural harmonics and flageolet glissandos. The Chamber Strings not only offer absolute homogeneity with the existing editions of the Vienna Symphonic Library, but are also versatile as stand-alone instruments due to their wide selection of playing techniques and extensive articulations.
