I'm not familliar with the measures following these, but I'd play the first measure the single bass notes with left and the rest with right:
right:124,3,4,2
left:3,2,3,1

The second I'd do the same, the single notes with left, so not the last cord 135 with left:
right:5,421,5,421
left:1,5,1,2

Also this is not in A minor, but C# minor?

On a quick glance, I'd follow it the way it's written. The note stems show you which hand to group the notes into. If you have difficulty with that, then consider distributing differently, but I didn't see anything that stood out to me.

He means do not play the last chord with 1,3,5 of the left hand as you have marked it in your score. Only the bottom note of the chord would be played with the left hand (2nd finger) and the other notes would be played with the right hand, (with 1, 2 and 4 (bottom to top)) the way it is indicated in the score.

I don't see any rationale to playing that chord (G,B,E) with different fingering than when it was played as a sixteenth-note chord on the last fraction of the first beat. Surely you'd keep the same fingering : Right hand 1, 2 and 4.

Regards,
