I have just started studying this great piece's first movement for my Grade 8 exam, and was wondwering if anyone could give me any tips. I seem to have a bit of trouble hitting all the notes in the fast bits (and it is a very fast movement indeed). Any general ideas about this piece are welcome, whaty you think of it as a piece of music, how you like to play it, whose recording is best, whatever.

I'm also studying Bach's Partita No. 1 and Tchaikovsky's January from 'The Seasons', so comments are welcome on those too. Thanks
