Hi Chris,
I didn´t follow with score and I could enjoy your performance very much. I think, you bring out quite clearly all these chromatic lines and arpeggios, which like a typic romantic arabesque to me. Nice camera angles in your video, btw! Plus a good picture quality.

Hi Chris,

I had a listen to your recording, I liked your phrasing of the melodic line, and the range in dynamics applied. This piece does not sound familiar, but it sounds nice. Since I don't know the piece I of course don't have the score on hand, but I will say, at 2:14 the sudden forte caught me off guard, there seemed to be little forewarning :lol:

For criticism I would have liked to hear more energy in the some of the repeats, besides that it was not painful to listen to, I enjoyed it.

Thanks Andreas. While I was happy with while playing and processing, I now feel it's not good enough though.

Thanks. I have not got much choice in the camera angles.

Thanks Riley. There is a short crescendo molto leading up to that, so I don't think it should come as a complete surprise. I resisted the temptation to start working up to that point much earlier, as Godowsky specifies not to.

Not painful, hehe, that is good :D I'm all for energetic playing but this is a very relaxed and soothing piece and I like it to sound rather dreamy.
