  • At my skill level I’d omit the low A entirely and make it much easier to play. But that’s probably the crux of your question. Commented Apr 19 at 10:47

As-written fingering recommendation

At quarter-note = 180, this is very difficult. The only fingering that works for me with accuracy is: 5-1 3 2-1 5 3 2-1 3.

Seemingly obvious fingering

The most initially obvious fingering, 5-1 5 2-1 ..., is too difficult to play accurately at speed for me to recommend it.

Best option(s)

I think the best option, however, is to drop the initial octave, playing only the upper A. Then the passage can reasonably be played 5 3 2-1 3 5 3 2-1 3. This is also tricky, however, so a further alteration is to drop the A from the A-C# dyad and instead play the entire passage A E C# E A E C# E using 5 (2 or 3) 1 (2 or 3) ....

    Educated guess: the original is an arrangement from MuseScore made by someone who doesn't know what they're doing.

  • @aress :-) Just leave out the lower note in the octave throughout the arrangement, and it should be fine.

  • @Aaron Well, the description says it was mostly playable. But the arrangement contains quite unnecessary octaves and stuff, and will probably sound quite bad on a real piano, as everything will be drowned in pedal ...
