In order to achieve the best results of the use of divisi, it is recommended to have a minimum of string players available: Violin I - 8 players Violin II - 8 players Viola - 6 players Cello - 5 players Contrabass - 3 players A larger string group is preferable. Fermata duration is meant to constitute an addition of half of the duration of the note. E.g. a fermata over a quarter note should have a duration of a quarter note / rest + a eighth note / rest.

— Whilst this is instantly attractive, melodic music, if one looks under the surface one finds so much more. There are many attractive depths to this atmospheric music.
