In many Louis Moreau Gottshalk's scores (eg. Minuit a Seville, Measures 15, 16 and others), the fingering is written "x" and not a digit. What does it mean ? I interpret "any", but I'm not sure. Thanks

I can't find a good image of the score but I am guessing that this is English Fingering.

Seldom used now, you find it in older editions of piano music. The thumb is indicated by either a plus sign (+) or a cross (x) then the other fingers are numbered 1 (index finger) to 4 (pinky).

Hope that helps
