2020 SMP Press Composition Contest Entry for the Popular instrumental ensemble category:  This is a flexible string/wind arrangement of the incidental music for the closing credits of Sylvester Stallone's first ROCKY movie.
(According to Wikipedia: "The film, made on a budget of just over $1 million, was a sleeper hit; it earned $225 million in global box office receipts, becoming the highest-grossing film of 1976... Among other accolades, it went on to receive ten Academy Award nominations, winning three, including Best Picture."
Originally, this arranger had envisioned and created this as an arrangement for wind quartet (flute, clarinet, horn and bassoon or bass clarinet). But after it was completed and shared, requests were received for a similar arrangement for string quartet (i.e., the original instrumentation used in the movie).  And so, this flexible package was created, in which the violin part is mirrored by the flute part (same key and page), the viola is mirrored by a clarinet, the cello is mirrored by a horn, and the string bass is mirrored by a bassoon/bass clarinet/euphonium.  So, virtually any combination of these instruments may be used to form a quartet, or even a double quartet!  The duration is approximately 2.5 minutes. 
(Note: The YouTube link leads to a wind quartet rendition.).
