FINGERWORK and INTERVALS from OP. 13, No. 9
Jacques-François Gallay (1795-1864)
Whilst on paper at least, there appears to be little to over challenge us in this study, we are going to need to give every ounce of attention available, to the not insignificant task of playing triplets with absolute evenness and flow. If Gallay had written two semiquavers followed by a quaver (two sixteenth notes and an eighth note) instead, we could all comfortably get away with blue murder here! For our fingers, a more laboured triplet motif is that much more complicated and demanding to engage with successfully.
