Elegiac Trio by Bax

    I have just started working on this piece and I am having some difficulty trying to find a pattern that works for the opening arpeggios. Has anyone performed this piece without playing the low G at the beginning of each measure? It so much easier if I drop the low G.

    Hi Wendy,
    I know this piece very well and the low G’s are a really important grounding for the arpeggios.
    My advice is to set your E to E sharp and always play the F above middle C as an enharmonic.
    Take the Bass G as a single note with your Right Hand
    D,G, Bflat & Esharp with 4,3,2,1
