Umwender (page turner)
The fingering here retains the tone of the D string and at the same time, is probably intended to elicit a delicate portamento between the f#' and the b'.
David will almost certainly have taken this note with a backwards extension of the 1st finger.
The fingering here not only produces a portamento between c'' and e'', but also facilitates a likely vibrato on the minim.
