Notes:

There is a edition added as a supplement to Schelinger's Gazette Musicale from 9th July 1843, with a significant error – the music from page 5 was by mistake printed on page 3 and music from page 3 on page 5. Chopin asked Schlesinger to correct the mistake in his letter from 22nd July 1843 from Nohant.
