Great job !! You'll get a better response (and wider audience) if you re-post this under "Member Recordings" in the Pianist Corner forum. I'd encourage you to do so !!

In my opinion, you should play it faster.

2:00 - Less pedal. More clear and more "shiny".

4:10 - A little bit more rubato. More free, more piano, more amoroso.

9:50 - You should use less pedal, to make it more clear instead of very romanticized. To be in the flow of the left hand : first octave of the left, then release on the accorde. But be aware to not make new accents that aren't written there! wink

10:17 - You should get it more piano and more leggiero.

Overall, it was a really nice performance. This is one heck of a piece, and it's pretty hard to play. Heck, I started this at end-13, but only got good when I was mid-14! But we can ever ever have it perfect, we always have work to do wink
