Three comments

This is a 3/8 hora or joc .It was written by Josef Solinski and was first recorded in Warsaw in 1908.
The rhythm 1-3|1-3| with no stress on the second beat.
The bit with the sustained "B"s can be played an octave lower or you play the really high "B" as a harmonic .

Alternately, instead of the high B harmonic, you could do an open E harmonic. If you’re like me and your violin sounds crappy on anything higher no matter what you do.
