Brahms Intermezzo Op. 118, No. 2
on: July 03, 2004, 05:45:04 PM
In the 5th measure of the F# minor section, is it okay to take the A above middle C in the third triplet in the left hand and play it along with the F# in the right? It would make the left hand a little more manageable. I know I must make sure to voice the A on the repeat.

Actually, I wish I had thought of that myself when I was learning this peice...
I do not simply because the measure has never been a problem for me.  With the right fingering, there is no trouble reaching the A (I use 512135 1 35).
However, if you have small hands, there really is no harm in playing both in the right.
A modern house without a flush toilet... uncanny.
