In this score of "G Minor Bach" by Luo Ni (which is a kind of remix of Bach)

in the note that I circle in red, the sound is very strange.

Is it correct? Do you also hear a strange sound when you play this note on the piano?

"G Minor Bach" by Luo Ni, mm. 22–25

The recording can be found here

(NOTE: This video must be viewed in YouTube; it cannot be viewed in SE, because the video owner has disabled that option. Also, the video version contains a few additional measures added just before the segment I'm asking about. The part in question occurs at 1:36.)

There is also this part which is very strange : enter image description here

it is almost impossible to play the left hand since we already have the thumb on the F : how could we play the G just after with the thumb at high speed : this is not natural at all : is the note correct ?


Based on the recording provided, the score is incorrect.

In the left hand, the notes accompanying the right-hand's Gb should be C-Gb not C-F. (Actually, both right-hand and left-hand should be F#; see below.)

The chord comprising beat 2 (Ab C Gb Eb) is an augmented sixth chord resolving to the G chord on beat three. The "correct" spelling would be Ab C Eb F#.

  • Actually in youtube she replays a part so the measure 24 is done later to the number in the score that I put May 4 '21 at 5:56

    @MathieuKrisztian I matched the score to the recording, compensating for the added measures in the recording. I also added a time-stamped link to your OP, which corresponds exactly to the pictured score.

    @MathieuKrisztian FYI: I've updated your original question to clarify how the video corresponds to the score.

  • Here at 1:10, he really plays the score that I said, but we don't hear a strange sound : youtube.com/watch?v=DRcVKXctvXo May 4 '21 at 20:36

    In this recording, the left-hand plays very softly, so the clash between the right and left hands is not so apparent.

There is an F natural in the bass with a G flat in the treble, a minor ninth.

If you disregard the F natural and change the G flat to enharmonic F sharp, then you would have ascending the chord Ab C F# Eb arpeggiated of beat two. That could be heard as a dominant ninth in 4/3 inversion. It does move to a G chord next, so that makes sense.

The "odd" sounding part is the actual F natural in the bass clef. Depending on how you spell that Gb/F# in the treble, you have a clashing cross relationship with those pitches.

    A couple of typos? 1) A C F# Eb should be Ab ...? And 2) "It doesn't move to a G chord"; "It does move to a G chord"?

  • Are you saying that the measure score is correct or that it is wrong ? May 4 '21 at 6:16
  • @Aaron, thanks! Some days, ugh! The brain/typing connection doesn't work. May 4 '21 at 16:04
  • @MathieuKrisztian, yes, I think the score is wrong. But right or wrong the thing that sounds strange is the cross relationship. Sometimes a cross relationship is intentional, but I don't think so in this case. May 4 '21 at 16:26

    But you don't have a score to play from. How much time do you want to dump into this endeavor? I would move on to other music, whatever you like, but stuff with professionally produced scores. May 4 '21 at 21:06
