Well, when I sight read that passage, I generally play with the left hand those notes with stems downward, and with the right hand those notes with stems upward.

First three (a d a) with left as to allow holding the octave D with the right hand for the alloted beat

then the rest of the measure with the right

bring the left up for the next four notes

and then i split this next line into the bottom note with th eleft and the all the others with the right i.e. left plays a d e f a while right plays everything else on top of it and then from then on in smooth sailing :)

Hope it helps.

incidentally, when playing the last three bars of the piano accompaniment to the orchestra (measures 49 50 51) how does one recomend playing those notes? currently i am doing the entire 49nth mesaure with the right hand except for hte last tw notes, which i play with the left as well as the first two of the next measure, and then i play the next four notes with the right and then the next four with the left and so on.  good idea? bad idea? sorry i don't know how to post the score so i guess the only people who will be able to help are those who have their own copy and are very generous with their time because the measure numbers aren't written, i had to count it out  :)

i play the stems that down with the left hand and the stems up with the right...pretty simply statement, but that's how my teacher taught me...keep the right hand slightly above and in front of the left and just let it slide down when it needs to...it pretty goes back and back forth with the left and right hand every 4 notes...you'll find it quite easy to get the pattern and get through that rather quickly
