I'm only familiar with the Etudes-Tableaux, but maybe look at Op.33, No.7 and see what you think. Op.33, No.5 is another idea; those are the two from that series I've learned. Remember you may have to roll some chords if your hands aren't as big as Rach's (especially half-way through for the left hand in No.5)

Any of the Etudes Tableaux would be great. Also, check out the Paganini Rhapsody.

Hey,
I am a very big fan of Rachmaninoff. His works are complex, diverse, and have many sides to them. I suggest to start off learning one his Elegie Op 3 no 1, in E flat Minor, A very typical piece by Rachmaninoff, that is NOT overplayed like his C sharp Minor prelude.

don't neglect his nocturnes. They are underplayed pieces of art written by a very young Rach (I think 15 or 17yrs old).
