Any suggestions for improvement.
How is the tempo ?
Are the rubatos appropriate?
What about dynamics?
Pedalling?

Thanks.

That is a fine recording you have made of this wonderful Chopin piece. You are a perfect pianist and I like your rendition. No criticism, I am not here to criticize people who are able to deliver such a good performance. All in all, I would prefer a somewhat slower tempo, but that is just a matter of taste. My own recording of this is 5:30 compared to your 4:35. Find out by yourself if a slower tempo is more appropriate:

Thank you C. Stephan for the nice comments.

I like your version. A very different take compared to mine with lots of syncopated playing and liberties. But it suits to the rather improvisational style of this piece IMO.
As for the tempo, after listening to your rendition I might consider a tempo around 5 minute mark.

Again thank you for sharing your rendition and the feedback.
