I have done well with this piece but one part defeats me. The rapid left hand in second movement 67-77. It's too fast to play in rhythms. Any tips ?

There another passage before in the sonata. Not sure if it counts as Alberti bass.

I don't know if rhythms is a good way to practice that passage, but you can practice rhythms at any speed so the passage is not too fast to practice in rhythms. Try SFSF or SFFF or FFFS. Alberti bass usually involve some rotation so don't just use your fingers.

Rhythms does work, but as pianoloverus said, don't just use your fingers. I had a similar problem a while back in the third movement of Op. 79 when it becomes 3 against 4. I used rhythms, blocking the chords (to really feel the hand shape), accenting and finger staccato. If you send 5-10 minutes a day treating it like a technical exercise and going through a regiment, it should come.

If you do accents, consider grouping it mentally as though you are going towards and away from the accented finger with the wrist might help if that makes any sense. I'm not articulate enough to word it any other way though...

On way to practice figures like that is by holding down the thumb and rotating your wrist to play the lower notes. Once you have that movement then you lift the thumb ever so slightly. This way you avoid accenting the thumb.

Oh this is a good one. I also have tried this and it works great.
