OK I do see the slurs in the pizzicato line now. Thanks for sharing this with me. Obviously, you can watch the girl on the left doing the pizzicato line and when the slurs appear in the pizzicato line, she simply continues pizzicato. That is a notation error. There shouldn’t be slurs in the music at all during a pizzicato line. Now when she has ARCO, she plays with the bow. Then, when it says PIZZ, she returns to plucking the string. Some of the ‘lines’ that look like slurs in the music, especially near the actual slurs, are slide indicators. But the notes really go by too fast to have an meaningful slides in pizzicato mode, so the performer ignores those too. Great piece! I hope this helps explain what you saw in the music!
