- Declare valiantly that you will learn the orchestral reduction exactly as written because of the small fortune spent on fancy conservatory training.
- Develop insecurities about your technical ability, practice habits, and value of aforementioned training.
- Curse the editor, who forgot that humans have only ten fingers and probably couldn’t play the stupid reduction either.
- Listen to recordings and/or study the full score. Recognize the ingenuity of the composer while continuing to curse the editor who tried to cram every note into the reduction.
- Swallow pride and reduce the orchestral reduction. Does this make it an orchestral concentrate? (Tee hee. My husband will be proud of that one.)
- Practice, practice, practice.
