On the cover page, Breitkopf advertises the piece as "für Flöte und Streichorchester (5 Str.)" It is unclear whether they are just selling 5 parts in the set, or whether it is really intended to be played with single strings. Compared to other works advertised on the page, e.g. "Schumann, Op.86. Konzertstück für 4 Hörner, F dur. (26 St.)", the number in brackets seems to be the number of string parts sold in the set.

St. is, I'm sure, Stimme. Not sure if there are 26 separate parts sold with the Schumann- quite possibly. Str. - streicher - is something else of course- and I'm left unsure what's meant too. Eric 20:47, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
According to this review, a recording on the MDG label with the Berolina Ensemble uses flute with string quintet
