I hope you don't mind me asking a quick question about the violin.
I am writing a piece for full orchestra and have written a part for the 1st violins (divisi). However, it is a very high and fast chromatic part and I am fearful it may be unplayable.
If you have the time please would someone mind giving your brief thoughts on whether a group of violins (rather than a virtuoso violinist) could play this part?
Here is a link to the notation...
Thank you very much,
No problem playing that Darren though at that tempo I suggest you tie the triplets. The slur will keep the section more together. It might not be perfect as a group but I'm sure you'll get the effect you are looking for.
Sorry about the late reply - I have only just seen your post.
Thank you very much for your advise. It is very helpful.
