Which Brahms-Paganini variations are harder?

Both of them are hard. But I think book 2 gets harder, as that is the way. As go towards the end of the set, the variations get harder, more complex.

I agree with Pedram Rad (okay if I call you that?); Book 2 of the Paganini-Variations by Brahms is much more substantial in content and therefore poses more inherent difficulties to the performer in terms of technical execution and musical interpretation.
Best Wishes,

What he said are my thoughts, as well.

I read that the Book I puts more emphasis on scintillating technical aspects, while the Book II has more musical substance as a whole. Of course both are very difficult.

Well, in my opinion neither book has much musical substance. Neutral
