Difficult Chess Study by A. Troitzky, 1923: White wins

Here is a cool chess study by A. Troitzky, 1923 in which White traps the Bishop to win. How should White play this? It is a bit difficult, but if you are up to long challenges this Monday, give it a shot based on the logic that White can win if one of the Rooks gets exchanged and White can use the other Rook to pick up the Bishop for free.
