Hi, Jaak -- Many thanks for playing this ultra-familiar piece totally "straight", and for establishing a tempo that allows full integration of the "B" and "C" material without change in pulse. Under those circumstances, it can be appreciated as the good-hearted, fully realized miniature that it indeed is. Thanks for sharing this!

Just for grins, I counted the trills to make sure you did the right number. grin (A lot of folks don't.) Like Tim, I also like that you have a tempo that makes the transitions smooth. I think you missed a gruppetto in the second theme but I'm not sure it is in every edition. Nicely played, all the same. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Tim and Damon for listening and commenting.
Tim your comment is very refined in a good way and exact.

Actually yes, you are right about the repetitions. Even the famous Valentina Lisitsa performance on Youtube has less trills that in the score. I was very surprised when found that mistake. And she does it every time with full awareness.

Her playing

Best,
Jaak
