A beautiful piece with huge demand in technique.
I enjoy the fun in expressing different section by showcasing the variety of tones capable from a piano. It is easy to get carried away when playing the big chords and fast passages so remember to phrase them just as expressive as any other sections. Coda is undoubtedly the most splendid but also the most difficult section of the piece, slow practices go a long way. A relaxed wrist will help with the speed.
