I am having a hard time gauging how much difficulty it will give me... I m pretty sure that the outer sections technically won't slow me down too much, but, I'm not sure I understand how difficult the agitato really is... or is not... Could someone possibly shed some light on this piece? thanks.

A not so easy piece indeed - traverses all 24 major and minor keys.

Better than anyone explaining, see for yourself the Gilels and Cambry performances of this on YOUTUBE.
