So, my first concert experience infront of more than 200 people (before I had only played for 20 at most). I was VERY nervous, but overall I did ok I think. Quality is bad as heck, but I can't help it. Enjoy and tell me what you think of it.

I enjoyed it, the main suggestion I have for you is perhaps to soften the right hand a bit and bring out the melody a bit more.

Rach prelude in G# minor happens to be my current project. I love this piece, and I enjoyed your performance very much.

It's really quite excellent--very intense and commanding, yet tasteful. I thought the pedaling and balance between the hands were good, and the general style was right on.

My only complaint is that occasionally I thought your ritenuti at big cadences and arrivals seemed to almost stop the motion, which I think can be solved best by just getting back into the tempo more subtly after the arrival.

Great job.

I agree with the above mentioned,

but for the most part. That was a really great performance!

Good job.
