Something I have in my score that you obviously do not: On the C part (sotto voce.) I have one quarter note b-flat trill before both hands come in. Also in that section, I feel you rushed the rubato a bit in your left hand.
Interesting, I don't think I have that (but must check), I see it in the CD sheetmusic version though.
I'm not sure if it will sound better, must try it out. Thanks.
7/5 - Yes, this one is weird too, But I think you played it just a tad too fast. I have a marking of dotted half note = 60. You were a bit faster. And if you slow it down, (just a little) your left hand may hit all the notes of the chords better and we can also hear and appreciated the melody line and rhythm more. One thing I don't get is the end. Does your score say to go back and repeat some of the first line?
Yes, I got carried away there, as in the my stupidly fast version of 7.4
No, my score says "Da capo senza fine" which I had always a problem interpreting. But Rubinstein does this repeating and it seemed to make sense to me. Though I think he repeats all the chords and I leave out the last 2 which I think then sounds more logical. Anyway I like it better like this.
Now you exaggerate totally, I meant considering a bit more expression - exaggeration in the playing, not in the statement
I was thinking sort of of what you said about the Op.6 set:
Say what? I personally have no problems in blaming myself completely for lack of expression
and I seem to remember you used the word expressionless before (though I can't find that now) , but I know I should not take these things personal
