Have you ever met Mr. Ignaz Brüll?

Like his contemporary Max Bruch, Ignaz Brüll lived in the shadow of Brahms and even though his artistic aims were unlike those of the greater composer, he has suffered neglect, much of it unwarranted. Brüll appears in the Romantic Piano Concertos series by Hyperion Records. Read more >>

dear heldie:
let me provide you three answers, order from best to worst:

1) try your own fingerings and solve it by yourself. fingering is about your body and your musical intuition and discretion, so it's a matter of try and error (and, of course, some good advice by a teacher who can listen to you);

2) in a case like this, when it seems hard to find a proper fingering, try it backwards. i mean, solve first the last group of notes.

3) although i did use some variations in this passage, my favorite fingering is (the first note considered is the a):
3 4 3 - 2 4 2 1 - 2 4 2 1 - 3 2 1 2 | 4 (use thumb to play the c) 3 4 5 - 4

btw, such a nice piece.

best wishes!

Here is an alternative (neither better nor worse, just different):

Remember: fingering implies motion - and you can always come up with a diferent fingering yourself:



Best wishes,
