Currently practicing Ravel’s Tzigane, and the star marking at the end of the first page, above the D in the grace note quintuplet really haunts me. I’ve never seen anything like it.
What do you guys think the meaning of it is? My best guess is Ravel wants the 4th beat to fall on that D. Such a realization does sound convincing, but why wouldn’t he have just written the rhythm out?
What do you guys think? Please help me, or I’ll die from obsessing over that mystery :p
