Okay, cool :) if I may rant, I have an exercise that is very applicable for 10/12 (not mine actually, it's Josh Wright's), called for the 4-3-2-1 exercise.
Essentially, for a given passage that is filled with a bunch of rapid notes, play through it slowly, playing each note 4 times, then 3 times, then 2 times, then regularly (1). Helps with note memorization.
You can also practice in it sections of 8 bars and memorize that way (I prefer to start at the end, so that in performance, there's always somewhere to go to, instead of stumbling over the same passage).
4-3-2-1 exercise video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKcwsHgM_6Y

I'm trying to learn Chopin étude op.10 no.1 (Waterfall). My piano teacher used to say that it was if not the hardest Chopin étude, one of them. And yes it's quite challenging with those wide arpeggios in that fast speed. But still also fun, and the sheet is really easy to read so you can get through the piece and memorize it really quickly. I've played op.10 no.9 before, and it's somewhat similar but for the left hand instead of the right hand.

I've been playing through the accompaniments for the Into the Woods score and it's very challenging but very very fun, especially if you have someone to sing while you play. Like all Sondheim really.

For 10/1, try thinking of your hand as an accordion- and look at this one.

Yes I've looked up a few "tutorials" for the piece. In those they also mention the rotation, (it might be the same guy I watch as in your video). Personally I find the downwards arpeggios harder, so I've been focusing on those, and to fold my hand, and to make the movement feel more smooth and easy . I really like how this étude teaches you to expand your hand and also your arms, body, and how it teaches you have to use the entire keyboard. Very fruitful étude!

I know I'm a ghost here at times, but I finally got around to making a cover of Grant Kirkhope's "Treasure Trove Cove".
The arrangement was on VgVirtuoso before the site died, but it's available on my website. Enjoy

The second part of Rachimanoff's Prelude in C# Minir is too damn hard and fast.
