Item Number: S0.173163
A shorter version of this popular movement.
Unlike many other arrangements I have not given the all of the 3 solo flute parts to the flute and oboe and clarinet. Rather I have given the tune to the flute, and given some harmony solos to the oboe (a mix of flute 2/3).
The cello accompaniment is given to bassoon and clarinet, and the horn adds some harmony notes to the mix.
This I feel maintains the integrity of the piece, as well as the "lightness"
I think it works.
