Very interesting song, totally unexpected from that game. I'll have to put it on my list of to-learns. I like the chromatic runs in the other versions of this song, what happened to them?

i like this. i was learning a version of this song (whichever is the most common version) and it's interesting how you took such a different approach. I haven't seen many other versions of this though.

mozarta, that's really nice!

in the spirit of "if you were to approach it just a little more differently ....." you might try practicing it reaaaaaalllllllly super slowly, one hand at a time. as you do this, i mean super SUPER slow, so that you're really just putting your hands on the keys from hand position to hand position AND MOST IMPORTANTLY each time your hand moves to a position it's absolutely super relaxed (and remains that way even when keys are being depressed.

i'm suggesting this as a way to play with a little more efficiency (and less w/fingers that kind of want to go up in the air!) and in that way to increase control over phrasing and dynamics. but overall effect of what you already have is indeed excellent so i'm not suggesting that anything's "missing!"

at the end of the day, the absolute maximum amount of relaxation in all parts in the piano playing chain (hand and fingers included) is a wonderful tool for a piano-performance kit.

so this only goes to technique. it's meant helpfully and definitely not critically!
