Prelude op28 no 24

Reference bars 14 and 18
(698.59 KiB) Downloaded 102 times

Would appreciate help with bars 14 and 18, that is top left hand bar(14) and the middle right hand bar (18).

1) In bar 14 there are 28 1/32nd notes which equates with 7 1/8th notes not 6 1/8th notes in the time signature.

2) In bar 14 the first half of the LH starts by showing alignment with the RH for the first 4 1/16 notes, with two RH 1/32 notes to each LH 1/16 notes: but this relationship falls down with final LH 1/8th aligning with five RH 1/16th notes - not four as I would expect.
For the second half of bar 14 LH, the 'alignment' which I thought was somewhat established in the first half does'nt work.

I have three versions of this prelude and in each case these bars seem to be all over the place, ( I'll get to bar 18 if someone is kind enough to help me with 14).

Please, I don't want to be told this piece is too hard for me, or, play slowly at first and it will come etc., etc.. because although self taught, I can cope; it is the theory I am after both carefully and succinctly explained.
