Has anyone played the Brentano Lieder by Richard Strauss? This is the first time I have ever done them, and I am mystified by the section from four bars after 21 in the sixth Lied (Lied der Frauen). If this goes at about 76 to the half note, how do you play it? At this speed, it’s impossibly awkward to do as written. Let’s not even get into the fourth movement, which has some pedal changes which would require growing a third foot. Do you split these parts with the second harpist if you have one?
