 Classical Symphony (Prokofiev)

Last movement measure 52 on... repeated notes and tempo suggestions.
Still not up to tempo but find leaving out last note of repeated grouping helps.
Never had fast tonguing skill but want to stay true to composition. Thoughts from someone who has performed?

This is an example of a material that can be made easier (or for some of us, playable) with double-tonguing. If the high Bbs and Cs at 62 aren't working, you can always just play whatever combination of 8ths and quarters you can manage. If you look at the score, you and the 2nd clarinet player (assuming he isn't too proud of his tonguing to be above a kludge solution) can do exactly what the oboes and bassoons do. At least it's organized and not random from playing to the next. If that solution was OK (in fact called for) by Prokofiev, why wouldn't it be OK for lead-tongued clarinets as well? I'm not sure why he thought fast tonguing is easier on a clarinet than it is on a bassoon or oboe. Russian clarinetists must have been different.  :)

Thanks, depending on tempo, I may join the oboe & bassoon with their rhythm
and let the flutes shine with their double tonguing👍🏻😬
