The piece is Minuet in D Major, WoO7 No.7 by Beethoven.

What fingerings would you use for the right hand on the following voicings?
[A4,C#4,E4][A4,D,F#][A4,C#4,G4]
and:
[A4,C#4,G4][A4,D,F#][A4,C#4,E4] which is basically the same in reverse.

I am using: [1,2,4][1,2,4][1,2,5]
and: [1,2,5][1,2,4][1,2,4]

[] indicates each voicing
C4 is middle C

Thanks

Ken.,

The only thing I would do differently is to use 1-2-3 on the A major triad rather than 1-2-4 to facilitate the slurs shown on the score here:

(The passage in question is the start of the second section of the Trio of Minuet #7.)

FWIW, the A below middle C is A3 in this numbering system:
