Misc. Comments

Violin 1, Violin 2 & Vcelle. (string trio) seul at rehearsal 21, page 89 of PDF (in the trio of the second movement, with a sound somewhat like folk fiddling - maybe); later oboe and string quartet solo (a bit after rehearsal 29).

First published in 1918 in duet reduction by Gustave Samazeuilh (PD-CA in 2018, as the arranger died in 1967.) Rouart plate of this arrangement is R.L. 10,437 & Cie.
