There's a relationship between r.h. notes: they're an ornamention around the real notes of the arpeggio in the tonality you have in the left hand,until b. 12. After that, you have a gorgeous melody -the first note of each four-,again just ornamented arpeggios from b.25, in 34 a chromatic scale form the second beat,aain ornamented arpeggios from b.37.The ending part: the same until the coda, b.119, again a melody in the third note of every four until  b. 126, from b.129 the melody is in the bass. Trust your ears :)
