Hello,
The work is still in progress and I'm really sorry for the piano (out of tune, very bad - but I have no other opportunity)..

Your octaves are really quite good. There's still some work to be done, but your tempo is fantastic, and your hands look relatively relaxed. The tuning isn't THAT bad either. I'm impressed!

It's a pleasure to watch the very rapid progress in your series of Youtube videos starting just a few years ago.

Ditto what PL said. And the piano isn't that bad, at least not as bad as many I've heard. Was this done with a zoom or flip? And if so, was the leveling automatically set?

Hi Damon,
I'm sorry for my english but I couldn't understand what you meant by "zoom or flip" and "automatic levelling".

I was referring to the recording device. I guess you weren't using either of those. "Zoom" and "Flip" are brands.

I recorded it with a Sony (cx-305) camera. But in the sound recording option of the camera I chose "zoom microphone" (but unfortunately I don't exactly know what it means, but it seems this option records better than the other, which was "standard microphone"). Is the sound good?

Yes, it's not bad at all. The room is a little 'bouncy' but the dynamics were captured fairly well. (I'm sort of casually comparing recording devices for future reference.) smile

Again good work and, so far, I love your choice of music. wink

Well, I'm not in a position to give advises to pianists. I have to achieve a lot to give advises and this will take many many years. But I can suggest pianists to read Goethe's poem "Erlkonig" (if they did not already read) before playing this piece. Moreover, in my opinion it is also a must to listen the original lied by Schubert. I prefer Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's interpretation:
