2. In measure six, the 4th group of 16th triplets, the third note should be an E4, not F4. So the 4th group of 16th notes should read B4-G4-E4 (e-minor broken triad). 
3. In measure eight, the 4th group of 16th triplets, the third note should be B4, not C5. So the 4th of 16th notes should read F#5-D#5-B4 (B-Major broken triad). 
4. In the second to last measure, the second to last set of 16th triplets should be A3-C4-E4 (a-minor triad), as opposed to A3-E4-G4 (a-minor 7th).
