* Rapidly and constantly vary the pitch within a tone (including microtones) above
and below the written note. Always bow in semiquavers.
** ’Cue’ notes may be played above the general dynamic level in order to be audible.

* Two-bow ricochet with 8 notes, as fast as possible. Glissando to the note two octaves higher than the start note, or failing that, to the
highest possible note on the same string. If the marked dynamic needs to be increased to produce the ricochet, maintain relative levels.
** If it is impossible to play these runs at tempo, omit some notes, but keep the starting and ending pitches the same. Do not
adjust the tempo in order to accommodate all of the notes.
