    We tried this arrangement in our community orchestra and it semmed rather thick orchestrated, despite its use of only strings and piano. The unison at the pesante in the second section semmed uneffective. In the third section, the arrangement calls for pizzicato, which proved uneffective, then we changed it to...

    arco and worked way better. Overall, the orchestration felt very busy and diverts attention from the solo part.
