    If I'm not mistaken you need:

    2 Fl.
    2 Ob.
    1 Cor. ing.
    2 Cl. in B
    2 Fg.

    2 Cor. in D & F
    2 Tr. in D
    2 Timp. in D & A

    and

    Strings.

    Hi a13ch,

    The score is in public domain, and can be seen and downloadedhere. Looks like 11 instruments are required at the beginning and throughout the piece.

    The composers "instrument call" are listed in that score. Hope this helps .

    a13ch! Good afternoon. I looks like you're question has been sufficiently answered already,
    so I'll ask something I'm wondering about.
    I asked in the "introduce new members" thread, but you might not look there again,
    thinking you've introduced yourself already, so I'll ask again here.

    I see you're from Indonesia, and I can't even imagine your native language or accent.
    I've tried saying your user name a few different ways, but don't catch any meaning.
    Where does "a13ch" come from? Just asking.

    Ah! Some phonetic guidance from a New Zealander.
    May-your-eye always be so discerning.
    And a sincere thanks. And I'm not phonetically off, just plural.
