You bring very nice stuff out of the middle section, and i like your rubato. Tempo is perfect imo. Some things to think of in the first section:

Dynamics could be better in the ascend after the f major chord, let the it grow from a pp at the E and end it at mp or something like that, at the F. Personally i sometimes like to play the f softer the second time, when you rehit it after the arpeggio.

Also be more aware of the left hand voice, sometimes i get the feeling youre just hitting the notes without thinking about it.

I really enjoyed your interpretation. Very sensitive and well played. My only critical suggestion would be to play the pp at measure 21 . I say it only that it was pointed out to me when I played it that that section should be soft and "ritard" before continuing the melody.

Adapa, glad you liked the middle section. It's the part where I let go of my frustrations, sort of a loud sigh. I agree playing that topmost F softer the second time around would have a riveting effect. I am excited to know what you mean regarding the voicing in the left hand. I'd like to improve it. Thanks!

Peyton, glad you liked it. Thing is, I let it loose in the middle section and ended up climaxing in measure 21. Thank you for reminding me to play it soft there, haha.

I thought it was great! You played it with a lot of feeling and gave it that "dreamy" quality. Way to go!! thumb
