You need to work a lot on those polyphonies in the first variations In those later variations you the pitfalls are dynamics I've ordered the Henle edition, and it should be arriving sometime soon.
In the meantime, I've talked with my teacher about the piece, and he told me that, although the variations do get more and more pianistic, the hardest variation is actually in the middle- Variation He showed me two ways to execute the staccato 32nd notes- one is through wrist motion and the other through finger motion.
How would one go about learning this passage? Does the type of motion you use depend on the tempo you take it at? Also, more comments and suggestions are, as always, welcome.
Yes, Variation 13 is the most difficult in my view as well. It is easy to get too involved with the RH here - make sure that you don't neglect the LH which is actually the more important part. Variation 13 RH is like flying staccato. You should not practise staccato but, instead, practise legato assai and pianissimo with exaggerated phrasing like waves then later you can try to play the same way as you did on legato but you should play only on the surface of the keys..

As in the case of great variation cycles by other composers, certain variations are conceived as groups of two or three. Thus the first two variations maintain the melody of the theme and lead to a culmination in the third "brahmsian" variation. Variation nr.
