I'm trying to learn this:
The run at the beginning is too fast for me, although I'm gradually getting closer with nails. Without nails I lose a lot of speed. Maybe I should be trying p,i, instead of i.m. ?
I've just about given up on trying to keep any nail. Commonly I play a week with nails and two or three without!
I've not tried this one, though I love Baden's music. I think pipi on the basses would help. I think the composer would not begrudge us the occasional slur to help speed things.
