I am learning the left hand of Blumenlied by Gustav Lange and I notice something very tricky in the left hand. An octave starting a triplet. Here is how I have been playing that rhythm in the F major section:
Octave staccato, 2 sixteenths in a triplet with the first eighth, extend last eighth.
Now I realize that is wrong but with all those leaps and octaves, I don't see any other way. The first leap is almost a whole octave.
Here is the part I am talking about:
You see that octave starting every triplet? That, I find is the trickiest part of the entire piece. Trickier than even the octave passages in the right hand of the Bb major section of the piece. Trickier than the 16th note rhythm in the D minor and Bb major sections.
How would I play a triplet that starts with an octave and then leaps to the 2 notes after that octave? I can only see playing the octave staccato which would not be noticeable since I have the pedal pressed. It would sound legato without being 100% legato. But that leads to me putting the first eighth note in the sixteenth note triplet and play that eighth shorter than a regular eighth and thus extending the eighth after that.
