It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Hey folks, any suggestions?: Regarding "Capriccio" by Dohnanyi, Erno [Op. 28 No. 6], anyone know the RH fingering for first 2 measures. It's just scalar thirds [in F minor] in a repeating triplet pattern? (But it's a bit of a tricky pattern).
It's either: RH 35,24,13 12,13,24 repeat. Or RH 35,24,13 [hand position shift] 13,24,35 [position shift] repeat. ? Or something else? Thanx in advance.
Well, I have trouble with fingering as well(and we know what you mean by fingering here on piano world. We aren't idiots) When it comes to fingering, you want to think about where you going. What is your destination. Sometimes you might have to go thumb under on some occasions. Sometimes you might have to quickly substitute a finger to get to your location(which I would recommend getting used to because substitution will be required in more advanced repertoire down the road. I hoped I helped a bit.
Currently Working On: Chopin Waltz in B Minor (Finished) Rondo Alla Turca - Mozart (Finished) Coming up: Phantom of the Opera? Certainly more Chopin(Valses and Mazurkas, maybe even a Prelude) And yet another Bach piece
RH 35,24,13 12,13,24 repeat. Voice the top notes and make them legatissimo. It's will sound completely connected!
Currently working on: Prokofiev Sonata 7 Beethoven Eroica Variations Chopin Etudes Op. 10 no. 2/5, Op. 25 no. 9/11 Ravel Jeux d'eau Liszt Totentanz Chopin Cello Sonata in G minor
Thanx for the input guys. Yep, I was using the first fingering that I listed above, and earlier this eve found a pianist who can play this piece to confirm that I was indeed using the correct fingering.
