    Greetings all,

    I am meandering through Schubert's Impromptu #1 from op.90 and came across something I have not seen before.


    http://imslp.info/files/imglnks/usimg/b ... _Op_90.pdf


    On the 3rd page, the 3rd bar, measure #4. It looks like a slash through the top of a note stem.

    What is it? How do I play it?

    Thanks!
    -Me

    Howdy,

    That's just a way of writing a shorthand triplet in this case .... I think editors or maybe composers use it just to look neater.
    Anyway, hope that answers question.

    From the preceding bars it should be clear that this is just a convenient notation for repeating chords. Schubert does this a lot. Also, listening to the piece would surely have answered the question...
