It's quite good!
Granting that this piece can be very 'personal' and that it lends itself to greatly differing interpretations, much or most of it is way more aggressive and percussive than I'd like it to be, but....like I said, it's personal. Obviously you have an excellent grasp of the piece, and by any standard or personal preference you do a lot of very good things. But I'd say, maybe see if you can find more lyricism, more reflectiveness, lots more places to be very gentle -- which IMO will make the fortissimos and other high points be even more powerful.
