Hi there, can somebody help me pls with an interesting fingering option on Liebestraum3 of the last descending broken scale (starts with highest F) before the third part?
I know it should be RH 23 14 23 15, but i saw a pianist (Strawberry) helping out with LH (23?), its easier i think, also it is elegant option, using LH help like in ascending scale before, even if you have to cross hands.
I think she use 23 LH on A/A# F#/G. than. D/E. but i'm not sure, video is too fast.would be nice if someone knows this particular tecnique!

I wish you would quote the measure number of the passage you are referring to. I don't quite understand what you mean by "the last descending broken scale (starts with highest F) before the third part?"

If you are referring to the second cadenza, it begins (measure 59) with hands together starting on E-natural in the RH and G in the left, so I am confused over your reference. Or maybe you mean halfway through that cadenza where the RH alone plays a descending passage in the middle of measure 60.

Perhaps you could clarify.

Yes, i saw now, it's the descending passage in the Module of measure 60, starting from highest F, as you say should be played with RH, but sevral pianists i see (Ott, Strawberry...) use also LH, and i am just curious to ask about this fingering option, so i can learn it. I think it is faster way to play and is also elegant. I can see they use 3 times LH 23, but i'm not sure, so i ask here, as the sheets do not clear my doubts.

I think you have to decide for yourself which fingering works best for you. I've not seen any score where the editor suggests redistributing that passage between the two hands, although that doesn't mean it can't be done. There might be a risk of losing evenness of tone when switching hands in that passage.

I am not sure where I would add the LH; I have always used the RH in that portion of the passage and I find it easy to maintain a lightness of touch (leggiero) by using the right hand alone.

It looks as though Ott takes each of the lower notes of that passage with the LH, so it's a simple alternating of RH / LH in the descent. That might work, but I will stick with what I am accustomed to.

Regards,
