COMMENT: This is my own orchestration of the famous concerto which regardless only two horns sounds surpizingly symphonic. On the YouTube video below one can hear how the E major version of this instrumenation sounds like. E flat major is the original tonality of this piece. This instrumentation is already very transparent, but it can be played with even lighter dynamics if just one player (or only the first stand) of an each strings section accompanies during the solo double bass passages. All the single parts are formatted perfectly fine for turning pages in the breaks. Double bass solo part is rehearsal-only part, with identic bar numbers like in the score and in the other parts- the solo part is otherwise quite plain, with only very few articulations, dynamics or slurs.
