An incredible piece it is. I played it and the most difficult aspect of it was making it beautiful. The opening measures, the arpeggios have to be entirely immersed in pedal, but make sure each note is audible and isn't blurry. Voice the chords. That is very important. Make the chords flow. Middles section, again voicing and make sure everything is flowing and even. To me, the trio section is the most difficult because it is very hard to make it sound beautiful. As always, make sure the accompaniment chords in the left hand are very quiet, but not lacking in a full tone and evennesss of notes. Make sure to highlight the melody line in the right hand above the accompaniment. If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask.
