The cello and bass rhythms used in this piece are very repetitive and the beat needs to be solid, while the melodic line is smooth and relaxed in style. Leave the bow on the string when two successive up bows occur (e.g. measures 3 and 4 in Vln 1). Rest with bow lifts or retakes are just as important as the notes here and should be counted carefully. The piano part covers the base line and all other parts, so is not essential in this piece.
