Is Zani de Ferranti worth it?

Hey all,

     I am just wondering about people's thoughts on the music of Zani de Ferranti. It seems like it would really take up a lot of time to learn and even more time to edit the scores, so I definitely won't be posting all of his scores on here as that would take forever. However, I am wondering if people think it would be worth it to learn playing some of it. Here is a link to one of his more substantial compositions I found:

Please rate my music (thank you)

Imagine yourself standing by the sidewalk. The sky darkens and drops of rain start to fall. You are holding an umbrella, standing still, and quietly listening to the tune sung by the rain drops as they one by one kiss the ground. You are soaking but you still wish for the rain to last forever and for you to stand still and quietly listen to the melody that came from above for eternity.

Also if you want more of my stuff, you may listen to my first piece.

Working on a Piano Sonata

I am working on my third piano sonata. What is so special about this sonata is that I dedicated it to Beethoven. So I am using components of Beethoven's style such as sudden dynamic changes with my melodies and harmony. 

I am working on the first movement right now and so far I have this:

Introduction: Andante with octave tremolos in the right hand going down 2 octaves of the C minor scale and arpeggios in the left hand, piano until the forte chord at the end
Exposition: Allegro with lots of chords, forte ending on fortissimo chords

I only have a few measures of the Allegro section so far. 

The Andante section sounds melancholy and it is supposed to represent the end of Beethoven's life. The Allegro section so far sounds dramatic and is supposed to represent me as a composer continuing down Beethoven's path as if I was Beethoven II and also how important Beethoven is as an influencing composer to me. C minor is a very fitting key for both of these emotions.
