For any of you who may know, I'd like the bpm/mm or Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu in whatever timing you have to offer. It's going to be used in a remix project of mine and the information would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
(More preferably, although highly unlikely. 4/4 time).

I don't know what you mean by "bpm/mm."
The key signature is cut time - 2/2, two beats per measure, and the half note gets the beat.
Not sure what the better editions say about the tempo, but imo, about 80 beats per minute seems like a good tempo.

I've heard convincing performances in the mm=72 range as well.

I haven't timed myself but I like to play it more slowly and distinctly than the recordings I have of it.
