Fingering for Petrouchka
on: May 25, 2004, 09:04:32 PM
In the first movement im having trouble finding an effective fingering for the 32nd note d/b natural minor scale patterns that begin just before the return to the opening theme..(m 71?) right now im using 5-4-3-2-1 then quickly bring my 4th under/or over depending,followed by 2-1-2-1-2-3-1-2-3-4.....but  up to tempo the 4th finger jump just slows it down it seems?? Is there another fingering anyone finds works well???\

Try 5-4-3-2-1 as you do and then 5-4-2-1-2-3-4-5-1-2-4

It works.  Similar fingerings can be found in Liszt and Prokofiev.
