Any suggestions?
Improve your reading skills.
Forget downloading free stuff off the internet and buy a book and work.
Sorry if I sound harsh.

Dear Jeffrey
I am intrigued by your question and your dilemma. Unfortunately, I only offer you another dose of tough love.
[Hopefully some of the teachers on the forum will post soon and come to the rescue]

Fingerings are sooooo subjective, that many heavy duty classical scores are most likely devoid of assists. Unfortunately the relative difficulty of the repertoire in and of itself assumes that performers are approaching it with the technical ammunition to subdue the beast. Editors are reluctant to load up a score with fingerings that many players will ignore anyhow in favor of alternate choices, since variations are infinite.

I realize that my musings are not supplying the answer you seek. While you are waiting for a serviceable link or download, I suggest viewing some videos of "la Rose" with your score and pencil in hand. Play the role of teacher and observe the various fingerings used by different players. Some may look and sound cumbersome. Eliminate those choices. Others may suggest perfect solutions to sections of the piece that have challenged you. Borrow these fingerings until something better comes along.

Roll up your sleeves and try to have fun. You can do it! The fingerings you use this year will not be identical to the ones you use next year or the year after that...
The process is evolutionary.

Never mind.

Look, I'm working on lots of other pieces. This is something of a lark. I'm working through the score in hand just fine. It's off to the side, not at all my primary work. I'm working on other scores all the time. So just, never mind.

Jeffrey, glad you found some fingerings. If you want some inspiration, ideas around phrasing, etc., Matt Palmer has a really nice video version that's out there on the interwebs. I picked La Rose back up a while back when I heard Matt play it.
