Metronome, count out loud, go for a walk and sing the passage to the rhythm of your footsteps. And don't fret; steady tempo is something we all must work on all the time.

His sonata in A minor D845 is very beautiful and not too overplayed. It's fun to play and also very interesting to study (lots of musical ideas that need to be expressed). Highly recommended.

It could be string setting which Dave B regards as a voicing issue. This could be resolved by checking the termination points for seating and debris. One way to do that is to replace the string as Dave suggests.
