Rhythmically difficult. Difficult 1st violin part, easy 3rd part. Harmonics required in one place. Difficult piano part. The piece may also be played by three violins rather than by violin orchestra. The upper violin lines could be played on flute or clarinet, and the lower line played on clarinet or viola.
