Another Question on Walton's Bagatelle #2

Post by Malcolm » Fri Feb 03, 2017 3:40 am

In the artificial harmonic section from bar 57 (which I am slowly getting to grips with) bar 61 evidently requires the drop D to be played with the thumb but at the same tine the thumb is supposed to be playing an A flat on the 4th string. This is obviously impossible as far as I can see, so should the subsequent B flat and F still be played with the thumb, which is still tricky but definitely not impossible or is it possible to leave them all out?

Cheers,
Malcolm

Play the acciaccatura (A on the 6th string in the bar before) with the thumb, then pull off to the low D with the left hand finger. That way your thumb is free to play the A flat so it and the low D can sound at the same time. Requires some practice but it's not overly complicated.

Yet ANOTHER Question on Walton's Bagatelle #2

There seems to be a misprint in bar 61. In every other occurence of this 3 chord sequence, the E is flat. I can see no reason why this is not the intention in this bar too: if Walton had intended an E natural, he would surely have included a cautionary natural sign?

Certainly appears to be a misprint. In fact, I hadn't even noticed and have been playing E flat anyway. Playing E natural simply sounds wrong!

I agree with John and Malcolm that this is a misprint (which I also have never noticed, as a natural E doesn't make sense).
