Sarasate Carmen Fantasy String Crossings

Edited: September 6, 2019, 1:12 AM · This is technically a re-post of a 2014 post that received no responses so I'll repost it.

What should one focus on in order to get the string crossings at the very end of the last movement clean? What type of drills might you recommend to a student working on it?
