I thought it was the in-between...  ???
i agree...the part that gave me the most trouble was the G major section that modulates (the part before the recap)

the rest was fine for me
J.S Bach Italian Concerto,Beethoven Sonata op.2 no.2,Mozart Sonatas K.330&333,Chopin Scherzo no.2,Etude op.10 no.12&Fantasie Impromptu

Well I said "the beginning" from the perspective of having it performed with orchestra. It's a quite exposed start. That G-major section is quite complicated but you're going with the flow. The hemioles in the last mvt. are quite tricky in terms of playing together.

I would have thought memorizing the last movt from all the horror stories I've heard!  (well, the 1 famous horror story)
Never look at the trombones. You'll only encourage them.
