Very impressive playing.

These comments are about minor stuff - the first two measures could be much slower, I think. And there could be more contrast between the big climax at the poco allargando and the following resumption of the music at a piano marking - there's some drama there that seemed to be missing.

fnork, the thing I liked best about this performance was the humor and joy you brought to the interpretation. I've always been rather bothered by what I consider overly severe and percussive presentations of his music -- which, I have to admit, he himself projected. Much like Beethoven, there's a lot of outright humor in some of the music, and that should be properly savored when it is present. Really nice performance, and thanks for sharing!
