LeClair Sonata No 3

December 2, 2018, 1:27 AM · Hi
Does anyone know LeClair Sonata no 3 movement 1. I have a question about the upper mordents played in bars 5 and 23. The fingering of these is tricky 3+1 to 4+2 quickly and back. Or in bar 23 - 1+3 to 2+4 and back. I’ve listened to recordings and slowed them, but I still can’t tell if the lower note of the second set of the mordant is played or not.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks

Play just that motion over and over until you get it. Keep your 1st and 3d down.
