Thanks for that - am listening/watching at the moment, on the second page (of the piano score). Well worth hearing, this - clearly a case of kudos to all involved.

Amen!   0:)

Some of the comments are interesting, e.g. "Why?"   ???   Obviously a purist!

Then there is the debate "transcription" and "arrangement."   :D

Interesting. Similar things have been done before, though obviously not on this scale. I imagine Paganini would be proud.
