I prefer to play the theme - first violin - but its also fun to play 'in the middle' - and usually obligatory as the other violin takes a turn.
However, I don't know how best to practise Violin II. Sure I can go over the notes, but they make little musical sense by themselves (except for the occasional break through). What do others - and violists - do to get the group feel? I thought of working with a recording but they are usually too fast before you know the part (and time is a premium).
