The first movement of number 4 is grade 5, but I think it's harder than other grade 5 stuff - I've eliminated the downbow slurred semiquaver staccato (based on my CD of it, where the tempo is 160 bpm) and made a couple of other minor changes to get the bowing to work out.

Has anyone else tried it?
