I have conducted this piece many times, and I am thrilled that finally, I can have the score on my computer. And I do agree with Catalina, it takes a lot of effort to get everyone together. Thanks a lot.
PS- Please fix the thing at the end with the basses, it does make it better.

The music is very accurate, except for one of the most well known themes of the song. In the climax of the piece, at the "Allegro vivace" the publisher has cut out the portion of music with the Russian anthem, "God save the Tsar" in the basses. It really spoils the ending of the piece, in my opinion.

I played this with an orchestra, as a first violinist, then conducted the piece myself because I enjoyed it so much. Is a very active piece, many things going on in the parts, and well worth the efforts to get it together.
