    I’m putting on a solo concert in two months.

    I’ve played it with piano, and it’s fine. Recently some other students I know did it with string quintets (standard quartet + bass) and it was beautiful. I think the colors and atmosphere of the smaller string ensemble are more intimate than orchestra… if you can find players and arrange rehearsal time, this would be a lovely option. If not, the piano part is relatively simple, and also works well. good luck!

    I agree that this work sounds great with a string quintet or piano as mentioned in the previous response. I’ve also found that it works well with organ if you happen to have an organ and organist available…

    Good luck! Randall Pratt
