Starting to listen -- and one can tell immediately that this is a very high-level performance, and a very 'personal' one which IMO is always a treat.

One "personal" aspect right near the beginning that struck me as "too personal," as though you were trying too hard to do something individual and different, is the pause before the melody note at 0:19. Does that really sound and feel right to you? Would you do it that way again?

Also some of the sudden dynamic changes strike me similarly, like at 2:43. I'd add as well that I would tend toward a gentler touch overall; much of it is played very gently, but much else is played with what seems like more 'exclamation points' than we'd want. But I much prefer a performance like this to one that is entirely routine. Thanks for posting it!

Thank you for your comment! You did capture the essence of my interpretation, which is very personnal. This is what music is all about, touching people heart with the music.
