I wonder how the "glissando" is played in this performance at 24sec
La foule
Any recommendations for using the pedal on this piece.
Thank You

It's not a glissando - it's a minor chord rolled quickly with two hands.

As for pedal, just use normal legato pedaling, like you would with almost any other piece. Every pianist needs to master it. You need to practice daily for several weeks for it to become instinctive (which it needs to be) - using both your ears and your right foot in connection with your fingers.

Here's a video:


"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."
