I haven't even decided which fingers to use for the trill yet. I'm leaning towards 1-3 now, with 1 on the B and 3 on the C# (this score agrees with that,
Terez, I suspect that the fingering there is for a trill that starts with the main note (which is probably wrong, since in Chopin trills usually start with the upper note), in fact just before the trill there is a "2" on the B.
Yeah, I considered that, and I just did my piano lesson (on a nice Steinway in the recital hall, woo!) and I realized I was using 2-1, with the thumb still on the B, so that I don't have to change to a thumb pivot to get down - I'm already there (3 goes on the A#). Seems to save trouble. I tried a few other ways and didn't find anything that felt less awkward.
I will say that Chopin gets easier and easier (and this is all relative, mind) the more Bach I play...which, admittedly, is not much, quantity-wise. I just play the same Bach a lot. I'm learning so very much about the key of E minor.
