Wink Divertimento 136 by Mozart

When I was a student in violin I found the bars 52 -62 of Mozart's 136 divertimento: second violin, quite difficult. I had great difficulties in getting through this when playing with a youth orchestra.
I tried to find out how others (professionals) are playing this. I learned that most performers, including quartets avoid this passage. They play something different. Is this correct?? Why do they avoid it?
Did Mozart compose it as such? Because during the performance it is nearly impossible to hear the contribution of the second violin at this passage.
Maybe I am mistaken.
