5-5-3-2-1-2-1-3

How fast is the passage? I like Morodiene's fingering, but replacing the thumb so many times can become difficult at faster tempos.

Alt LH: 52121

Alt RH: 1 32 | 12 31 32 45 | 1235 1234 5

My hands are a little smaller, so the 1234 was a little much for the first four sixteenth notes. Not terribly so, but the 5 made it more comfortable for me.

If your hands are very large, you can try this:

Alt RH: 1 32 | 12 34 51 23 | 1234 12345


Also, since there is nothing playing in the LH, you can redistribute if you feel you need to:

2nd measure:
LH: 53 21 RH: 21 35

3rd measure:
LH: 5321 RH: 1234(5) or LH: 2 on the top E


So, you see, you have a lot of options. Hope one of them works best for you. smile

Thanks all!


Derulux, My hands are big. I can try every fingerings. grin
The passage should be played similar to this: http://www.mediafire.com/?0a836eogt48e8ea
Is playing it with one hand better?
