I'm not sure if this goes in classical or non-classical smile I played this a lot slower than most of the recordings on YouTube. I can't control it any faster, that's the main reason, but I also feel like you can hear more of what's going on when it's played a bit slower? But maybe not this slow. Anyway, this was the best take, so it's time to call it done and move on.

You play it well. You keep the rythm all along. Of course the piece call for a tempo a bit faster (probably 30s to 50s would be ideal), that said it is working fairly well at the current tempo, it has a certain charm if not what is usually played. What you would need though to do is add more articulation and sparkle. That right hand must sing and project way more, and the left hand must mark the rythm more firmly. So what you can not do in terms of tempo, you have to compensate with more variation in dynamics and nuances.

Thanks for the feedback. I agree on more dynamics / shading, I was actually playing around with the soft pedal for some of the repeated sections to try and give it a bit more color. Didn't end up doing any of that for this recording, but I will play around with that.

That's one advantage of using a digital - I "cheated" by turning on a metronome to help me keep time, but it's automatically removed from the recording that the piano saves to the thumb drive smile

Ha ! Fair to you to say that ! Only the result is important. It is important to keep the pace in a piece like this. So good job !

Great job. You have a mastery of keeping your tempo even and really did a great job on the tricky LH jumps in the C section.

Thanks! That even tempo is 100% due to having a metronome playing through the headphones smile When I play it without that, I consistently speed up through the middle part.
