Misc. Notes:

scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.
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 to small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite.

Misc. Notes:

These file(s) are part of the Werner Icking Music Collection.
Some editions show D# as the first and fifth notes of the left hand in bar 8: this must be a mistake, since it does not sound right harmonically...

Misc. Comments

  • Main soundtrack of the 2002 film The Pianist. A comparison of the piece played by Adrien Brody in the film with the score above will illustrate some differences. This is because the PDF version provided above is a slightly simplified version that contains some modifications from the original Chopin manuscript. The Henle Urtext versions, considered by many to be accurate, appears to contain many editorial modifications from the original manuscripts, including the F# in place of the original D# as mentioned in the miscellaneous notes above. The Leon Erdstein edition appears to be faithful to the original manuscript, for this particular piece at least. Finally, the Paderewski editions of Chopin, considered by some to be spurious, contain a commentary at the back of the volume which details the sources with any known modifications clearly listed.
