REGARDING OP. 21 BY SCHUMANN, ROBERT
Okay. I know this topic is old so I apologize for bringing it back up. But I'm so glad
to have found someone who has played this piece (and quite successfully I must say)
because I am currently teaching the piece to a student and I am stumped on
what fingerings I should use for the second section... or more specifically the
section marked TRIO
when he goes into the triplet accompaniment figure.
Apparently there is a video of Horowitz playing this piece and he uses his LEFT
THUMB on the upbeat of each one. So in other words he uses his pinky to play
the bottom bass note than jumps the thumb up with the left hand... but his hand
is so big...
I can't seem to understand which is best. I know it can't be that hard yet
it seems like I'm making it harder than it is. Can John or anybody please
