Tremolo In Ravel's Forlane
« on: July 07, 2015, 11:19:51 PM »

I'm unsure of how to execute what I believe is a tremolo in the Forlane of Ravel's Le Tombeau de Couperin.  It occurs around the 70th bar.  The two notes G# and E are to be played together, with a triple line separating them from an F#.  Is the tremolo executed as a trill on the E and F# or is it an alternation between the entire G#, E chord and the F#?  I would greatly appreciate any clarification.
