All separate quarter notes should be plated at the frog and off the string. The first violin, ‘cello and bass parts require some shifting, while second violin and viola parts can be played entirely in the first position.
It is a grade 3 on the UIL PML and class C on the Florida MPA list. It is on the PML as a grade 2 string quintet.
