Greetings,

first of all i do not know whether it is still allowed ti have a quick link of my videos or performance as it seems to me that there are some changes in the audition thread.

If it does not fit the requirements, then it shall be removed. As i wanted to improve (i'm an amature) and i believe this P&F are still lacking something, i would love lots of opinions - be it good or bery bad haha!

Overall good playing ! You have a nice and relaxed style, considerable technical skill, and obvious respect for the music. What bothered me here were a multitude of wrong notes, especially in the fugue. As you seem a secure player I believe these are read errors rather than slips, and I would recommend that you carefully listen to some professional recordings, and follow along with score. In Bach, everybody will pick at any wrong note. The prelude is quite good but there were one or two strange awkward moments in the fugue, and an unfortunate fumble at the end, for which you should maybe have re-recorded it. The instrument sounds very nice, despite the poor and distant recording quality. Personally I'd open the lid, at least partly, to get a fuller and brighter sound.
Keep up the good work.

Probably, but you are also missing a lot of accidentals etc. It is important, especially in Bach fugues, to read the score VERY carefully. Often, a misread note does not really sound wrong, so you can go on for years thinking it's right 8)

My advice: take far longer than 1-3 days to redo a Bach fugue. There are a lot of things you need to correct and remember, and this needs time to sink in and become part of your concept. I think you are on a good course, but by all means do not hurry it. Bach needs patience more than anything.
