Hi!

This is from a recent live performance. I know I have a very (very!!) slow approach to this piece, but I think it works. Have a listen and tell me what you think smile

I thought the tempo was fine. I checked YT timings for many other performances and most were at most 20 seconds slower.

Especially taking into account the space where you were playing, the tempo is quite apt.

Very nice! Great expression, great phrasing. Really enjoyed that one. While im not familiar with this piece, and while I tend to prefer the slower side of tempo, I really liked the tempo.

Nicely played. The tempo is just fine. It is in the average of what i have listened to, some play it more slowly and some faster. So i dont find it particularly slow.
