This sounds like what I imagine Rachmaninoff would have written if he'd written a teaching piece. Almost overly dramatic, chromatic, dark and loads of fun. My daughter played this on a recital at age 12 and adored it.
So well-constructed that it can be taught by rote, if necessary, I love to teach this piece. It sounds harder than most of his other pieces and has very few "tricky" moments. It's a "bring down the house" kind of solo that is a great finish to any recital. Though it's listed as Late Intermediate, it sounds quite advanced.
This whole volume is full of gems, but particularly the Preludium, the final piece in this book, is great for a student who wants to play a Brahms Rhapsodie but isn't quite ready. It's full of dramatic octaves and flourishes which aren't really that difficult. Not suggested for small hands.
A great piece which "looks" impressive (lots of cross-hand passagework) but ultimately isn't anywhere near as difficult as it sounds and looks.
There's a piece in here called "Argentina" that is in a mixed 3/4 and 6/8 meter that is fantastic and fun to play. I found this when I was doing the New Materials Review at the MTAC convention. There's a "look inside" page and you can see what that piece looks like. My student, Leo, loves this piece.
