MiaoW, it sounds good in its entirety for the equipment that you have. However one comment is the thirds at the beginning and recapitulation.

And I'm sure you know this too but they are very very sloppy -- and this is pretty much the iconic figure in this piece.

May I suggest instead of playing the thirds in two groups of two (i.e. BD-CE, BD-CE, DF), play them syncopated like BD, CE-BD, CE-DF. I feel like the weak parts of the beat you don't actually play the notes and skim over them and syncopating the rhythm will stress them more.

Yes, I practiced it a lot but there's still a chance to make mistake with the thirds and the trills, mainly because I didn't find a proper way to practice them. Thanks to your suggestion sincerely.
