Chopin Ballade No. 1 Fingering Trouble
on: November 17, 2021, 10:12:08 PM
I've been practicing Chopin's Ballade No. 1 in G minor and I'm doing well except for some fingering trouble. Specifically in measures 130-137 in the right hand. If anyone has some suggestions for me I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

I do 2413 241414 141324 241324 etc etc

I don't think it's an optimal fingering but I learned it that way and it works for me.

Based on the fingerings in my Henle edition you could also do something like
2413 251413 251425 241325 etc etc
