In this adaptation of his orchestral suite, Copland pushes nearly every instrument to its limit in terms of technique, range, endurance, and intonation.

The trumpet and cornet parts are frequently written above the staff, ascending to d3 in places.

The clarinet parts are often very high, especially in the solo and 1st clarinet parts.

A full clarinet choir, including alto and contrabass clarinets, is required, as there are no cross-cues for any of the clarinet parts.

Separate parts for piano and harp are included in the score, although Copland marks these instruments as ad-lib.
