I was listening to a lot of Wieniawski the other day and I couldn't help but think... even a small segment of the violin playing would be extremely difficult to do with all our sample libraries and technology.
Do you think articulations and expressive playing like this:

I have high hopes for Sample-Modeling to create some nice stuff (as their Trumpet is wonderful) but don't you think it would be amazing if someone could really raise the bar so that we could compose music approaching the amazing sounds in music like Wieniawski's? At the moment it's near impossible to even make fake-sounding versions of these compositions.
