It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!

Hello to everybody! I want to show you a new recording. In this case is the Prélude number 28 from the opus 20 from Frédéric Chopin.
This Prélude is called "Funeral march" (for obvious reasons) and it has been called "Prélude of the chords" by Hans von Bülow due to his progression of four notes chords. In my perfomance, I've wanted make a little bit more fatal and here is my performance
Well, here you have my interpretation of this Prélude so charged by harmonic mass. I hope you like it!!
I really like your playing and the funeral parlor atmosphere you created. I have not played this piece but have heard it played, mostly by Horowitz. My only suggestion is to decrescendo each phrase so the last chord of each phrase is softer than the first chord. That would provide more shaping to the piece. But, sounds good.
