I took a software program I have an slowed it waaaaaay down, and practiced each passage until it sounded right.

The program is for Mac called 33 RPM, and VLC should work also.

I do believe getting the original unorchestrated performance is the way to best learn the piece.

Amazon also has it for sale used at lower price.

The only version I've ever liked, even compared to the original orchestrated version, was the one a friend learned from the sheet music for solo guitar. Still love that version and I'm guessing that this is the same score for it. Nice!
