Hello!

I’m currently learning “The Truth Untold” (by BTS) as arranged by Jova Musique (here is the link), and I wanted to ask for some advice for two difficult fast passages. The piece is in the key of C#-minor, and is written with ♩ = 113bpm and in 4/4 time, which makes the sixteenth notes/semi-quavers in those passages very fast.

Imgur post for difficult passage 1: https://imgur.com/a/uCzTnkw

Imgur post for difficult passage 2: https://imgur.com/a/3v4uqIP



Explanation of the Imgur posts:

The two Imgur posts above each deal with one difficult passage/bar, and the following bar of each passage. (The following bar is just shown to give context to the previous bar and it’s fingering).

However, each bar has two different fingering options, thus there are two bars altogether represented by four photos in each Imgur post.

Photos 1 & 3 represent a single difficult passage with two different fingering options (labeled options 1 and 2), which is the passage I’m trying to decide on fingerings for.

Photos 2 and 4 represent the same following bar, just to give context to the bar/passage represented in photos 1 and 3. This next bar is not one in which I’m unsure about the fingering (although I still appreciate any advice given :D). Photos 2 and 4 will also have different fingerings to each other because of the different fingerings of photos 1 and 3 (i.e. the fingering in photo 2 will be used for the next bar if the fingering in photo 1 was chosen for the previous bar, and the same with photo 4’s fingering being used if photo 3’s fingering for the same previous bar was chosen instead).

So for example, in the Imgur post for difficult passage 1, photos 1 and 3 represent the same difficult passage (in this example, the passage that starts with the G#+C# dyad/two-note chord), with two different fingering options which I’m trying to decide between.
Photos 2 and 4 represent the bar that comes afterwards (in this example, the passage that starts with the D#-B-G# triplet), with two different fingering options based on whether option 1 or option 2 (i.e. photo 1 or photo 3) was chosen for the previous bar’s difficult passage.

So, for each difficult passage (photos 1/3 per post), which fingering option would you recommend that I use, especially for speed and accuracy?

Thank you in advance for any advice you give!

For passage 1, option 1 looks good to me, although in bar 42, consider 321, 521, 421, 321.

For passage 2, neither of your options would suit me.

I would try 1 2 4, 1 2 4 5, 4.

Crossing the 4 over the 5 at the end might appear strange, but at speed is quite doo-able.

I think conventional arpeggio fingerings work perfectly well in these passages, I'd stick with them. I mean I'd prefer option 2 for passage 1 and option 1 for passage 2.

Fingerings proposed by Jova Musique incline you to depress keys closer to the closing lid, where you have less control over the keys and as a result a bigger chance of mistake in dynamics. My teachers would probably say that the author of these fingerings lacks good piano manners.

I'd also go for option 2 for the first bar, possible modifcation: 2-3-1-2-3-5 on the sixtuplet.
I use the 3 instead of 4 in arpeggios like that because I have more control when playing fast.
