Busoni – 25 original pieces and 15 Bach transcriptions

The Italian pianist Busoni’s important achievements as a composer were long over-shadowed by the fact that he was generally thought the greatest piano virtuoso after Liszt. The solo piano versions of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor (for organ) and the Chaconne from the second Violin Partita are among his most well-known transcriptions. Read more >>

Can some one help me out with what RH fingerings to use on bars 15 and 17

The notes are

F C#CA# C (C#CA#) CC#

My doubt is for the grace notes(in brackets) which is the best option

1. 3-C (4-C#,3-C,2-A#) and 1-C, 2-C#

2. 2-C (3-C#,2-C,1-A#) and 2-C, 3-C#

Thanks

Hi Waldstein,

my edition is in d-flat major, so I was a bit surprised by your notation...  Grin

Why only two fingering options, anyway? What do you think of:
 
3-c (4-dflat,3-c,2-bflat) and 3-c, 4-dflat, 2-bflat (end of phrase)?

This works well for me personally. It is also analogous to the same "motif" in bar 11.
I am curious what reasons people give for introducing the thumb...

Enjoy the raindrops,
Egghead

Thanks Egghead

I used the "#" notation because i couldnt find any single key for  "flat" on the computer and didnt want to keep writing "falt" every time.
I now understand how irritating it must have been.!!

Another help

how do i paste a small section of a PDF file (Like say a couple of bars from some sheet music) into the message. I am able to copy from PDF but do not have the option of "pasting" in a message.

if I were going to write out D-flat, I'd just do Db - everybody would know what that meant.

to paste a piece of a PDF, you'd have to either upload the file to a webserver (I'm not sure, this forum might have upload capability somewhere) or take a screen-capture of the chunk of it, and upload that image to a webserver - you then link to that image using the image button above.
