I played this arrangement a few years ago, with a good quintet. We actually performed a couple movements on public radio, along with my own recital and a seperate recital by the quintet. It's good. In fact, it's a little more logical than the piano accompaniment. An experience like that, or playing with a string quartet, really takes you out of your comfort zone, and you are forced to come down to the common denominator of phrase and structure. It's worth it!
