Is my composition for solo violin playable?
Hi, recently I posted the beginning of this piece with a question and now I present to you my whole piece with variations for solo violin. I ask you - would you say that this is playable? Which parts could be improved? Especially the jumps starting at m. 123 may be to wide? Thank you for your help!
Measure 92 looks kind of rough, but I'm just eyeballing.
This measure has a solution: Play the second 8th on the open A, then the d with first finger and the following double top (g sharp = a flat) with 2 4. The jumps later on are playable but some of them are very difficult to play legato, maybe impossible.
As Albrecht mentioned, measures 140, 143, and 144 are quasi-impossible to play slurred. To execute those passages, a violinist would have to either jump back and forth with the bow between the G and A strings, skipping over the D, or he would need such large hands that he could stretch the suggested interval of a twelfth.
