This is the somewhat popular second movement from Claude Debussy's suite, Pour le Piano (composed in 1901).

In arranging this, I have stayed mostly true to the piano part. I have marked in some commonplace liberties that are generally taken with tempi and dynamics. I also changed the voicing of some of the chords in order to retain the "thickness" of sound that the piano provides. The only "big" alteration I made was at bar 55, where I added two beats in order to include the D#'s in octaves (it's so dramatic in the original, I couldn't imagine leaving it out!).

Enjoy! (Oh, and those of you who are very knowledgeable about strings, please let me know if any of the double stops, etc. are impossible, or too difficult to be feasible. Thanks!)
