I am looking for advice on correctly playing the C#-B-E chord which spans several octaves on the first beat of measure 27 (in the fast triplet section). Member 8ude from the Pianist Corner recommended playing the low C# slightly ahead of the B (both with the left hand) and the high E with the right (simultaneous with the B). I like the legato this approach allows in the step-wise descending tenor. How would you teach this part? Any input would be appreciated.

Here is a HUGE hint.

I have small hands, I am very used to rewriting scores to accomodate.


WHAT TO DO.

take the lowest note in the TREBLE and give it to the left hand

take the highest note in the BASS and give it to the write hand


Now that you will play it easily you'll also be able to memorize it easily because both hands are playing the same cords.


Now because I made that so very very easy and a great piece it is.

Your homework for me is to tell me the cord names and their inversions.

Go to it enjoy, you'll be so relieved.
