Hi! I'm practising this piece, there are a lot of technically difficult places, but for me the most difficult are the beginning chords (orchestra part). I play all chords in right hand 1-2-4 or 1-2-5, is there any better fingering? Do you have some tips for practising this passage?

Picture of the beginning:

Thank you so much! smile

This passage relies on not having stiff wrists

That was a problem for me too.

Though I tried several different fingerings it was never safe. (as you can see in the attached video)

Hakki, you play it very well!
It's very uncomfortable for me to play it at tempo :-/ I practise it for 3 weeks, so I hope it will improve...

Thank you Veronika!

One of the things I have been reminded about chord playing is that, when practicing very slowly, the hands make a quick and horizontal (without lifting high) movement over the keys to the next chord so that there remains a little time to wait over the chord before playing it.
