I really like this! The rhythms are really good, but I just wish it was possible to play~
In my experience, it is difficult to actually have correct intonation or even move my finger quickly enough (All strings players are trained to hold the bow while plucking) to do sixteenth note pizzicato--especially on viola, as it is so cumbersome.

Completely agree with you on playability! Though I'd say it's possible to play those sixteenth note rhythms in the given bpm, actually hitting those notes (intonation-wise) would be a whole different story :P My other pizzicato piece (sequel to this) definitely takes these thoughts into account, and is much more playable than this piece. Still need some speedy fingers regardless on either of them though...

Thanks for the feedback ;)

violin 2 looks difficult
at the beginning, and at the beginning of every other tempo change pretty much, look at those chords! love it though!
