Chopin Op.25 No.1
« on: May 07, 2003, 07:59:56 PM »
I'm having a bit of trouble with the awkward R.H. fingering of bar 11 beats 2 and 3.Most of the etude uses a 5,2,3,1,2,3 fingering for the right hand which I suspect I am supposed to stick to at this point, but at speed it's a problem and I find 5,1,3,1,2,3 easier, but am I missing the point? Although my edition has no specified fingering, is it Chopin's intention for me to overcome this fingering problem?I'm probably just being lazy and avoiding the problem.What do you think? :-/

No, you're not missing the point. If you want to do 5,1,3,1,2,3 instead of 5,2,3,1,2,3; that's fine.
