Hi guys,

Any interesting practice tips or methods to build the different sections of this piece in the most efficient and effective manner would be very appreciated. Does anyone have the sheet music with complete fingerings, I would really be curious to get another point of view on those and then adjust if necessary.

Peace,

NF

It's a very broad question. Could you post some specific parts you are having trouble with, rather than asking about the whole piece?

I just started learning it. I will take it slowly and probably work on other things at the same time, get some space from it and then work on a small sections when I get the chance. So more of a long term learning process on this one. The reason why I was asking for fingerings is because I like to have suggested fingerings from the editor at the start so I can mess around with them and get comfortable after trial and error and I didnít find an edition where they were included.

From what I've seen, Alkan editions often lack fingerings. Alkan was such a virtuoso and his pieces are so hard that I guess it's assumed that people who tackle his music will be virtuosos themselves who know what fingerings they need. Which is frustrating for everyone else!
