Debussy Pagodes fingering help
on: March 24, 2020, 03:30:25 AM

Hi and welcome to Pianostreet.

It is a recurring pattern, so consistency is preferable.  Also think about the sound produced with a finger crossing, will a finger crossing allow you to achieve your desired sound. 

1, 12345 or
2, 12345
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
