Hi Gals and Guys,

So: in the slow middle section of Schubert's piano piece, bars 133-136, we have tremolos alternating between hands. They are written as 64th notes. In recordings I have, the tempos seem a little fast for playing them as such, but maybe my ears deceive me.

If you have experience with this, what do you advise: slowing down to play it as 64th notes, and gradually bringing it up to whatever tempo can be achieved on one's instrument; or playing the bars as 32nd notes; or just playing as fast as one is capable of, not minding the exact number of notes, and keeping the other hand in time with the flow of the music? Or perhaps something else I haven't thought of?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Craig

It is possible to play them as 64ths as they are written, if you think that slows the whole tempo down i think it is entirely possible to play them as a tremolo blurrrrrr

Thank you! That is what I have been doing, but thought I might be making it hard on myself.

I will keep at it. Thanks so much for replying.
