xx Debussy - 4th Prelude, Measure 29
July 20, 2010, 05:37:25 PM by trazom

In Debussy's 4th Prelude from Book I: "Les sons et les parfums tournent dans l'air du soir"

I'm confused on Measure 29 in which there are two consecutive F5s in the right hand.  In my best edition (hands down more accurate than the other two that I have) the first of these F5s has a sharp placed in front of it (making them both sharp).

A sharp here seems very odd -- it disrupts the perfect octaves that are otherwise present in the RH for that measure (as the higher F6 has no sharp marked).  It makes more sense to place the sharp before the 2nd consecutive F5 (in harmony with the enharmonic Gflat in the LH).  My two other editions (which I have much less trust for) have neither of the F5s sharped.

Who can help me get to the bottom of this?

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
