Hello Everyone!

     I am deciding on repertoire right now with my teacher and I wanted to get some ideas on difficult passages or portions presented in the a minor prelude of Rachmaninoff's Op. 32 preludes since I will not be seeing him again until Tuesday. I know in the beginning that the RH has voiced upper notes while playing the 16th descending notes and will be difficult to differentiate the two voices. The bottom of the second page has intervals in the RH which, again, are presented with more voiced upper notes that must be played quickly as they are the top notes in the intervals. Are there any difficult passages that have been trouble to anyone in the past besides the ones I mentioned?
