I'm still looking for the best way to pedal these pieces. Too much pedal and it seems to get muddy, too little and it loses it's mysterious quality.

I like your playing of this piece and you have captured the mood. A couple of suggestions: make more contrast between p and f sections. Lessen the attack on the note following the grace note. You are also hitting a wrong note in your left hand chord. I think you're not playing Db (around:59 and throughout the piece). I don't think you are using too much pedal.

Thanks. Good suggestions. I think you mean the Bb. Didn't realize it until you mentioned it.... Rats!
