If this is in an orchestral part, and there are many in Mahler, the ballets etc, you have to work out the fingerings and then work at it until you can remember it all by heart, it doesn’t really matter about vibrating strings when you replace the left hand, you’ll learn how to place accurately. If you can’t place 4321 accurately yet in 1st and 2nd inversions then work out where you can get away with 321, without too many hands on the way up/down. Ideally finish with RH at the top so that your left can move down again, or for the turnaround at the top, all a matter of preference, but generally it all comes with experience. If you are getting behind, make sure you hit the first beat and don’t overrun.
