Edited: September 12, 2018, 10:00 PM · It demands masterful bow control, steady rhythm, impeccable intonation, and perfect ensemble. It only takes one person in the section to destroy the latter.

September 18, 2018, 3:48 PM · Sorry, but is it any harder than other Mozart? Like the overture to Figaro?

There is nowhere to hide in this piece.
