Grieg PC #3 Solo Intro Arrangement: Opinion Poll

I arranged the flute/clarinet intro to the solo part of the Grieg Piano Concerto, 3rd movement as a solo piano intro.  In it, I put grace notes in the 2nd and 3rd measures.  I am itching to take them out.  Should I leave them in or take them out?  I think that taking them out adds a nice dimension to the actual solo part when the piano "introduces" them in its 2nd and 3rd measures (in this score, measures 25 and 26).  What do you think?

My Vivaldi score, seen used in the wild

Hello Strings,

I just wanted to share that a (not great) engraving I made of Vivaldi's cello concerto RV 407 years ago (when I had been doing music for only three years) is being used in this professional performance, as I managed to deduce after peering at the first violin part on the concert master's desk:

This is pretty cool, because I made that score and made it freely available on IMSLP so that it might be played more often. It used to be on musescore.com too, long ago, but if I upload it now then the playback and layout are all different. Anyway, here is the IMSLP link:
