Hi, Maria! And welcome to Piano World!

Certainly a very creditable performance, Personally, I'll give it a "Close, but no cigar" rating (You don't mind being offered a cigar, do you?). I think you've captured the overall "sweep" of the piece throughout, but I think it lacks a certain intimacy in the details -- the shaping of the melodic fragments at various junctures (particularly in the left hand), the lack of whispers in the augmented section, a somewhat-too-fast declamation in the glissando section, etc. Briefly put, I think you need to celebrate the pure sounds of "The Piano" somewhat more, now that you've convincingly established the overall musical line and contours. But -- really solid job, and thanks for sharing!

Ah, pleasant memories. The Suite was one of the pieces I heard all the time in my house. Eldest used it for competitions and for his senior recital a few years back.
