I love these pieces, and although the majority of it is far above my current level, learning the entire work is a long-term goal of mine.  Henle rates the entire work at level 7, but doesn't break down the separate pieces by difficulty.

[edit] I'm interested in hearing people's general thoughts on learning and playing this piece. Has anyone here studied it? Thanks!

How do you think knowing people's rankings would help you? My thinking is that you could try playing each of them and see which ones seem manageable for you at this time, and then learn those and leave the rest for later.

It's less about "helping" I suppose and more a desire to start a conversation about the piece in general and people's experiences in learning and playing it.

I hadn't heard this one - thank you for sharing! I like his interpretation, unfussy with a lot of feeling.
