Ok, after some search and testing, something found:

- Sonatina is quite good, but it at least all instruments with tremolo missing
- Compifont has tremolos (not convinced about quality of all)
- Agean Symphonic Orchestra does not sound like real instruments at all

If you like the original SSO, you should try Peter Eastman's SSO2, which includes tremolo samples for all string sections.

You also might be interested in the following:
No Budget Orchestra
Versillian Studios Chamber Orchestra
Virtual Playing Orchestra

Here's a piece that I made with VPO: Pumpernickel and Periwinkle

If you like the sound of VPO and you're using Ardour, take a look at this Ardour template
