    Hi, this is my first post here (I think...). You might like to check me out on Piano Society as a pianist and a composer.

    Fingering Q A: Yes, your fingering is better than Mikuli's. Let me suggest another little change on your fingering. Take the last 2 notes of the measure (a & g#) with 1 & 2.

    Fingering Q B: Yes, there is a better fingering. After c (last in the bar) with the thumb, take 3 on b (first in the next bar), 1 on c, 2 on db, 1 on c.

    Hope this helps.

    Re fingering Q A: One more thing, actually a better suggestion than my previous one for the last 3 notes is 2, 3, 1, which is actually also written in your Mikuli music.

    That's exactly where "mixah" had a problem and started this question...

    well, i am ready for recoding this etude on video, and I have to say, I used the fingering recommended on the score, and its working for me. I am sorry that finger pattern does not suit into your playing styles.

    Glad the fingering in the score is working for you, but it didn't for "mixah" and doesn't for me. As a matter of fact, I never bother to look at fingering in scores, as I do my own.
    I don't understand why you should be sorry that the fingering suggested in the score does not suit me, I am very happy with my own fingering and so are my students and my colleagues who come for advice.
    I also hope you realize that different scores/editions of the same piece will give you different fingering.
    As a matter of fact I am writing a book about advanced and virtuosic fingering.
    Good luck with your recording, hope we can hear it on YouTube soon.
