On another thread I just mentioned that I'm lacking technique and skills required to play some of my 2nd violin orchestral rep., and that this year I'm practicing previous lesson material on my own (no teacher).
One of our pieces for the spring concert is: Mein Vaterland, Nr. 2 Moldau (Vlatava) by Smetana.
Most of it is just too fast for me. In fact, it's so fast I can't even figure out how to 'fake' it effectively. While I've had to fake passages in other works, it looks like I'll need to fake 90% this entire piece unless I can come up with some strategies to help me play some of it at least.
Any practical suggestions welcomed!
(Thankfully the rest of our current rep is managable!)
