Well, I started learning this quite difficult piece. I wondered if there is some nice method
to learn it. The piece's main difficulties arise from the fact that each hand plays two distinct voices and the tenor voice is shared by both hands!
Is there any kind of exercise that can improve or help learning this piece. I'm quite stuck when it comes to a quicker tempo.

Well if speed is your problem you can find a discussion on speed in How should we practice part

https://afpa.hooxs.com/how-should-we-practise-f15/speed-how-to-practice-t113.htm

And I think the Hanon exercises are helpful too for drills... if you would like to "speed up"

I just found a little girl playing this piece... wooow that is really difficult.But she does great....Good luck on playing this... you could post it if you are ready with it Wink

The best advice i can give you is take it section by section, divid the piece into smaller chunks that are more manageable, then go over each section, learn it hands separate, then SLOWLY hands together,

also you can use a technique called slow/fast which means you play the piece with a dotted rhythm. Hold one note slow, then QUICKLY play the next note and pause on the one after that, be sure to alternate which note is being held otherwise you'll make the whole piece sound unsteady and lopsided. Hope that helps!
