If anyone has, it hasn't been successful. I remember thinking that it might be a good idea, but the extremely rubato phrasing, and interpretive leeway granted the soloist would make it a difficult choice for choreography. And besides, it's hard to find a ballet pit orchestra with a soloist (even the concertmaster) to be able to play it!
