I haven't played this (I'm not sure I want to) but I have a copy of the score.
2. Bb clarinet
4. Eb clarinet
5. Oboe d'amore
6. Flute & muted trumpet in octaves
7. Tenor saxophone
8. Sopranino and soprano saxophones
9. Horn and celesta in octaves; piccolos at the 3rd and 5th
10. Oboe, cor anglais, and Bb clarinets in octaves; oboe d'amore at the 5th
12. Flutes, piccolo, oboes, cor anglais, Bb clarinets, and tenor sax, in 3 part harmony
13. Flutes, piccolo, oboes, Bb clarinets, and 1st violins, in octaves
14. Flutes, piccolo, oboes, cor anglais, Bb clarinets, tenor sax, and violins, in 3 part harmony
15. Flutes, piccolo, oboes, cor anglais, trumpet, and violins, in octaves
16. Flutes, piccolo, oboes, cor anglais, Bb clarinets, trombone, soprano sax, violins, violas, and cellos, in 3 part harmony. Four bars from the end, piccolo and soprano sax drop out; bass clarinet and tenor saxophone join.
17. Flutes, piccolo, trumpets, saxophones, and 1st violins, in 3 part harmony
18. Flutes, piccolo, trumpets, trombone, saxophones, and 1st violins, in 3 part harmony
Solo #4 is the only entrance for Eb clarinet in the piece. I'm supposing it could be doubled by one of the two Bb clarinets.
As printed, solo #8 begins on the F sopranino saxophone, switching to the Bb soprano saxophone near the end. A teacher who was a regular sub with the local professional orchestra informed me that the solo is customarily played on the soprano saxophone all the way.
Oboe d'amore is a double for Oboe II. I've been informed (don't recall by whom) that the oboe d'amore passages are often played on cor anglais.
The bassoon and trombone solos begin (cold) on Bb4, a seriously high note for both instruments.
The trumpet section consists of 3 trumpets in C and a piccolo trumpet in D.

昨听收音机讲，李云迪正式改名为“云迪”。the Caucasian DJ pronounced "yundi" in a very funny way. :-)
"raindrop" reminded me one of Gibran's writings. will post it on another thread.
