Issues : Uncertain notes on ledger lines

b. 64

composition: WN 17, Polonaise in B♭ major

a-c1-a1 in JC

a-f1 in EF

a-c1-f1 in PE


a1 as the highest note of the chord is most probably an error of JC; it is revealed by f1 which is featured both in EF and PE. Analogously, the compatible presence of the cnote in this chord in JC and PE leads to a conclusion that its omission is probably an error of EF. In the main text we give the version of PE, which does not raise any doubts.
