Topic: Mercury in The Planets
The fast, staccato passage at measure 205 (starting on high G) is just killing me - I haven't been able to figure out how to make this consistently sound clean, partly because my current bocal is much less forgiving of leaving the whisper key off on G/Ab. Is there a trick fingering that will at least make it easier to transition smoothly between notes? (The later passage starting on F# is much less awful for some reason.) Or alternately, what can I do to my reads to make the articulation cleaner (in combination with several hours practicing the standard fingerings with a metronome)?
