Tackling "Sovenier De Florence" - one movement, at least!

For the Albuquerque Philharmonic chamber music concert coming up on May 20th, our quartet decided to play the 2nd movement of this great Tchaikovsky piece as a sextet with two additional musicians. The first movement would be a blast, but is very long and difficult, and we don't have much rehearsal time to prepare it. And the 2nd movement, like other lyrical pieces by Tchaikovsky, is just lovely. For those of you who haven't heard this piece, it's definitely worth checking out!
