(flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn)
Rating: difficult
  1. Tranquillo
  2. Scherzando

Only parts, no score. The print is like handwritten, not easy to read. All parts are full of hints what the others have to play. And there are cryptic signs (H-), not explained but probably showing important phrases.

(flute, violin, viola, cello)
Rating: mid-grade
  1. Allegretto
  2. Adagio ma non troppo
  3. Allegro
These are the parts. The score is separately available from the same edition. Looks a bit complicated, changing times.
