Using a breath controller in place of Expression Pedal
I've remapped my breath controller to #11 and am finding it to be much more intuitive and expressive than a foot pedal when playing the Stradiovari. I encourage anyone to give it a try. You won't be dissapointed!

Any inspiration would lead to pianissimo.
Just kidding. I believe you're on an right path.
I'm thinking of bow changes, often involving some V-shaped drop of dynamics, followed by some crescendo. Very difficult to perform with a pedal on fast passages. Probably much easier with a breath controller.
