Here's a performance I prepared on somewhat short notice for a church nearby where I live. Not my best performance, but I felt like sharing it anyway.

Let me know what you all think!

Thanks!

I'm glad we finally get to see your face at the end.

I have not heard any performances where the short trills are accented on the last note the way you did. They are usually played with the accent on the first note. Your playing was very accurate and with good rhythm. I would just add some speed and dynamics.

Try and at least consider a little bow or nod at the end. You deserve one.

Some performances of this Sonata to inspire you:
