It's a lovely piece well-suited to the trio of instruments in this arrangement, but it's clearly been transposed using a single poorly-chosen click in Finale or Sibelius software. Although written in E minor (the title pertains to the original key), bars contain successions of notes like the following: "E-flat, C#, B, E-flat, E-natural, B, A-flat, F#." This is a direct quote from bar 15 of the 1st violin part. Additionally, the viola part uses a low F-sharp once but during the rest of the piece jumps octaves to stay off the C-string entirely, even when parts cross and collide. There are missing ties in a few places and a couple of accidental errors, as well as a lot of very unconventional bowings. I transcribed the whole thing part by part and with a lot of editing it is a wonderful piece, but I wouldn't pay money for it -- it's the sort of error-ridden stuff you'd expect to find for free on-line.
