There are many options... first of all, there are a few solo strings libraries out there. And while the number of players may not matter to you, you'll get a more intimate sounds if you work with libraries based on fewer players. Check out eg. Sable strings (see link below). And then there's the larger libraries - if you look at the best options, you'll often find that they come with multiple/parallel sample sets base don different mic positions. If you go for the close or "first chair" samples, you'll achieve a lot more intimate sound than if you for for the other mic positions.
