Topic: E to G shake...

In Mason Jones' transcription of Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin for ww quintet, the last 3 measures of the Prelude has an E natural (5th line, tenor clef) going to the higher G natural above - does anyone know of a possible fingering for this shake?  Thanks in advance for any future response/help.  Jim

Hey Jim,
I'm playing the Jones Tombeau this weekend. I'm starting with a couple full fingered, then moving to this with the e-flat resonance key down.

I recently learned that Paul Hanson does this move all the time. Once I knew he was doing it I heard it all over his solo playing.

First finger, over blow to get the E, then trill the high Eb key, like Saxton said.

Another really good one from Juan de Gomar:

LH 2 3 Eb   RH 1 2 3 Ab

to

LH 2 3 Eb  RH Ab  (Move the 3 fingers of the right hand!)
