I can't find anything wrong with this sheet except for a few misplaced parentheses on the LH towards the end (i.e. a note that has them, some other notes that would have them). I can fix this for you if you're busy.

Great job!

Nice arrangement. Few suggestions:

-Could you replace the pick up notes with the figure at the end of the second bar? Those are the same.
-I think those arpeggios scattered around would be easier to read at full-size. They almost look like cues or grace notes or something, but it looks like you intend for them to be played normally.

Fixed the full-size arpeggios, but I wasn't understanding your first comment.

I think he's saying for the pickup change the x notes to En-C-En like at the end of measure 2.

Ah. I can, though I still confess that I don't hear any particular pitches from the original. If that's how you would have it though, so be it.

It just gives the pianist something to do there. The former was unclear imo.

Hmm, guess Chopin didn't actually want that run to be played. Of course not...



Make notes small doesn't necessarily mean they are cues or "unimportant". Sometimes it's just a means to attain a desired horizontal note spacing (or "punctuation", as it would be termed in printing/publishing circles [citation: http://www.rpmseattle.com/of_note/category/finale/music-spacing-mus]).

Chopin actually didn't want any of that to be played. He wanted the player to imagine it.

But seriously speaking, this submission's excerpt would be more similarly compared to the thirty-second notes in your picture (first system, second measure and second system, first and third measures), which note are not altered in size when compared to the rest of the piece.

Last things:

-Could you replace the pick up notes with the figure at the end of the second bar? Those are the same.
-The parenthesis you use in the LH starting in measure 14 seem to be off a bit at times. The final set in measure 15 is used for a note that is not doubled in the RH (meaning it needs to go lol) and there aren't any used at all in the last measure (should occur on 2nd, 4th and 5th F's that occur).

Not quite correct yet, you missed two things I posted about:
-the second chord in the LH in the final measure should have the A in parenthesis (it's being doubled in the RH)
-the pick up notes I think would be better as the E-C-E figure used at the end of bar 2 (and most even-numbered measures following). In the recording it sounds just like that.
