This is one of those pieces that should have been mentioned in the "you don't have Beethoven hands" thread.
I'll probably never play this piece until I actually saw my piano keys smaller. Even with big hands, this prelude can be very daunting and always makes me just grab my head in frustration at my hands.

IMO, from what I've seen during some sight reading, it's not as bad compare to his etude tableaux op. That one is real heck This is one of the most difficult preludes.
Good luck learning it! Originally Posted by Mattardo.

There's a Moment Musical of his that has a large chord, as well, and rolling that chord just doesn't sound right to me.
It keeps reminding me of a comment from Beethoven to a violinist who claimed a sonata was unplayable - "Damn your fiddle! Even with my hands which are not small I have trouble with this piece's chords - as written. I don't know how they compare to other pianist's hands, but I can reach a 10th comfortably using either my thumb and 3rd-5th fingers, and an 11th - but not as comfortably.
But that doesn't matter when there are certain notes in the way! With that said - it's still a glorious piece, and a fitting end to the preludes. I think in the last chords of the prelude, you could either cut out the top A flats like Berezovsky, or cut the Fs at the bottom of the right hand Knabe Grand— can I move or loosen sustain pedal?

Themes from the C sharp minor prelude Op. It's an enharmonic battle.
I'll probably never play this piece until I actually saw my piano keys smaller. But where a roll would be more noticeable, I make a choice between playing the lower note by itself just before the beat, with the rest simultaneously on the beat, or playing all the notes except the top note simultaneously on the beat, and the top note by itself just after.

On the first page the "optimistic" D flat major theme makes its case. On the second page a "pessimistic" C sharp minor theme brings an ominous mood and serious doubt. This accelerates into an even more unsettled third page, where we can hear the descending minor 6th theme being pulled around relentlessly in the LH.
On the fourth page the major and minor themes are played simultaneously with the extra rising scales in the LH reminiscent of a section of Chopin's Ballade 4, which can also be felt as a struggle between contrasting elements. Finally, on the last page, the "pessimistic" falling minor 6th has been transformed into a glorious "optimistic" falling major 6th, but still with the C sharp minor anxiety throbbing away beneath. In the end D flat major "wins" emphatically, and, as per the title I give this piece: Faith triumphs over a crisis. Many commentators see the piece similarly; hope this helps.

My pipe dream is to be able to play the whole of Op. If that time comes ahead of , I'll be delighted.

I honestly don't think that small hands should be a showstopper with this piece. For example, on the second-last page, where Grave is marked and the key signature changes back to 5 flats, if the RH chords on the last beat of each measure from the 4th measure onwards are too big to play simultaneously, play all of the notes except the top note simultaneously on the beat and then jump up ASAP to hit the melodic note separately.
So in the 5th measure you can play the G flat major chord as usual on the beat, then quickly jump to 5 on the higher A flat.
