Transcribed totally off-season (in June!!), but I felt like it so I did it!
I knew a lot of confusion would arise by using that “orchestral-piano” score in the video but that was also the only one I had at the time, and the one I used to base my transcription on. So for the umpteenth time, the score in the video is not my transcription: it is an orchestral score merged and shorthanded. My transcription is not a literal sequencing of it, but that should be farily obvious by listening.
That said, enjoy!
Op.228 –> 22|8 –> 2+2|8 –> 48 –> tbpt48 ^^
There is a liberty in the first part (last bar of the first page in the video) where the right hand plays “A” instead of “E”, because that’s how I’ve always “internally heard” it.
