b. 103-104

composition: Op. 26 No 2, Polonaise in E♭ minor

Single notes in A (→FE1GE)

Octaves in FE2 (→EE)


The bass line led with single notes is the original version, changed by Chopin in the proofreading of FE2 (→EE). The proofreading proves that the introduced in many later collective editions change of the 1st octave in bar 103 from F1−F to G1−G cannot correspond to Chopin's intention.
