comment How to know whether a note is to be played with the left hand or the right hand?
@Benjamin: If you're worried about heresy you should know that Beethoven did not write it like that. He wrote no accent, no sf, no hairpins, the slur should start on a different note, and all the lower melody notes in this bar, from A to C# instead of just A, he wrote on the upper staff (suggesting that he did not suggest them to be played with the right hand). You can find the manuscript on IMSLP. In your version the editor clearly suggests right hand for A, though.

comment How to algorithmically find a chord progression for an infinite arbitrary melody?
Most obvious patterns: Only using chords Am, Dm, C, G7, E, and F. (Usually) the chord is chosen to contain at least one note from the pair. Actually I bet these rules alone would produce a very similar result.

comment What is Tempo (Speed): Moderate 4
What is the context? I can think of one place where I've seen this: when there's a piece with many different moderatos (and other tempos) this could indicate the return of the tempo and character of whatever was played when moderato was played the 4th time. Another guess for 4 would be "in 4". This could be useful if, for example, the (beginning of the) piece/part has a 2/2 -feel and one wants moderate quarter notes instead of moderate half notes. I actually think this second interpretation is more probable since you say "moderatE 4" instead of "moderatO 4".

comment Cziffra's cadenza in Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6
It sounds and looks very "Cziffra". So, you could study his arrangements and transcriptions of him playing (you can find some on YouTube at least) to learn about his embellishment vocabulary. Maybe then you can write it down yourself.
