Holy cow! This piece is so far out of my league all I can say is fantastic! Advice will have to come from another quarter... smile Your performance just blows me away.... BRAVO!!

I do wish your recording was louder. Out of curiosity what piano are you on and what are you using to record?

Nice job. As already mentioned though, your recording is barely audible. I downloaded it and amplified it with Audacity which unfortunately introduced a little distortion. Personally, I like a lot more rubato in this piece, but others will like it with less.

I absolutely love this piece, but right now don't really have time to tackle it. Your playing is amazing. Wish your recording is louder and the piano tuned, then it will be perfect.
