Misc. Notes scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

Pachmann's famous fingerings may be of interest to experts; less advanced players might find the fingerings puzzling, and not what they were looking for.
The editor, Vladimir de Pachmann, left one electrical and one acoustic recording of this piece, and one recording for piano roll.
