I'm writing a piece of music which may be played by an actual orchestra, and I'm suddenly unsure about some probably very basic points.
Is it reasonable to write demisemiquaver (32nd note) runs for the speedier instruments (eg violins, flutes, oboes, clarinets) if the overall tempo is around 130bpm?
Most of the study scores I've been looking at are at a slower tempo, but the few I have that are directed to be around 130bpm dont seem to have anything faster than semiquavers (16th notes)
Is it ridiculous to expect performers to play at this speed?
I've been writing for virtual orchestras for so long now - I don't want to make a rudimentary error.
Any help on this would be most appreciated.
