Fingering for Liszt Appassionatta
« on: April 12, 2016, 09:15:10 AM »
Hi everyone, I have this problem with the fingering for the left hand for Appassionata below.

It feels slightly awkward and inefficient to do 2-1-4-2-5-1-3-2-5-3 just wondering if there is a better fingering.

EDIT: seems like the pic is not working; here it is http://imgur.com/a7iWn6W

Key signature? I'm guessing four flats but next time pls show it

The fingering you posted is the one I'd do. Make sure you use rotation, and point your hand slightly to the right.
I am trying to become Franz Liszt. Trying. And failing.

Think of it as each group of 5 is the hand in one position and the transition from the first group is accomplished by moving from the 5 to 1 to start the second group.

If it is tough, get each group of 5 notes under control first, then bridge them together.
Chopin Ballades
Chopin Scherzos 2 and 3
Mephisto Waltz 1
Beethoven Piano Concerto 3
Schumann Concerto Am
Ginastera Piano Sonata
L'isle Joyeuse
Feux d'Artifice
