Performance Notes

The set-up on stage is important, with two Violin groups on each side on the platform: Vilin 1 lefts and Violin 2 right, as seen from the audience

1st Movement:
In bar 1 & 7 the entire string group should adjust their intonation to the Double Basses and their natural harmonics. In the rest of the movement normal intonation should be used.
The slow and rhythmical vibrato pulse should follow the accents

2nd Movement:
The 10/5 meter is divided into two beats, and the dotted lines show the position of the second beat in each bar

3rd Movement:
no comment

4th Movement:
The very high harmonics are intended as mostly a high 'airy' sound. The small gliss/portamenti that will invariably occur in the fast shofts of positions are intended
