    It’s ironic because I’m a wind player myself, but I prefer the sound of a “pure” string ensemble over a string/flute combination when it’s such a small group of musicians. And, I would definitely go for the duet over a soloist, even if you only have a small number of guests, the sound will be much more big and full with two harmonizing instruments than with one. I assume the options in your poll are the options being offered by the musician you’ve selected. I would recommend looking at his/her website, or using email to ask, and listen to samples of the violin alone and also with cello and with flute. The difference you hear will inform your decision a good deal.

    I love the cello, and played violin for a while, so I say cello and violin combo! And cello is so romantic 🙂

    Got it! Well I think you can’t go wrong with either of the combos. 🙂

    I actually was thinking of this. But the prices they quoted me were outrageous! $800 for an hour. Uh huh!
