I have spent EIGHT HOURS uploading it, no joke. It was partly my fault though - Gilels' recording is 6:34, Martha Argerich's was 6:18, Weissenberg's was 6:06. Mine was....8:11. Even worse, I suspect there was a crisis towards the coda but I couldn't be bothered to record again. Sorry. Criticisms are welcomed.

p.s. I did it on Steinway model D cool

I still get 4 more videos that I can upload - but it may take like a week to upload shocked

The notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notes - ah, that is where the art resides! - Schnabel

Well, I listened to it twice; first without the score, then with it. A few comments:

Definitely strive for a lighter overall quality in the Allegro Tempestoso sections. The score confirmed for me that there a lot of pp directives throughout that you are not honoring (at least to my ear), and the cumulative effect is a rather labored quality which is not in the spirit of this piece. I need more a slapdash quality, with more humor -- and probably more speed (and more mistakes!) to achieve that end.

I hear the Moderato sections as being more lyrical and introspective than you presented it. I think that would provide welcome contrast, and make a stronger case for the overall structure.

Finally, I think the Finale needs more of a definitive build-up, with the typical Prokofiev defiant finishing statement.

Thanks for posting -- enjoyable to listen to!
