The various accompaniments offered with this transcription are intended to keep the spirit of the work, and at the same time give as many performers opportunities as possible. This arrangement may be performed with as few as three, and as many as fifteen C flutes, using piano, harp or guitar and double-bass accompaniment. Alto and bass flute(s) may be substituted for (or supplement) the accompaniment parts when these instrument are available.
