Although Andrew is right, Monica, that there is a certain unevenness to the triplets near the beginning, I don't think this has anything to do with hand stretch and jumping.

Your video shows that you generally play the first two notes of each triplet "in position", and then jump down to the third, and back up to position for the next triplet. If you were "groping", one would expect the larger gap to be before and/or after the third note, but in fact it is usually between the first and second!

My impression therefore is that you are simply intentionally (though perhaps subconsciously) putting in a modicum of rubato, well within the boundaries of good taste and consistent with the word "innamorato". I rather like it that way, and am almost sorry that when it changes from minor to major, the pace becomes a bit more purposeful and strident.

That's okay, I still don't get what you guys are talking about. I'll just say like what you suggested....(said with my nose in the air, and in a low and snobby-sounding artist voice) I play it that way intentionally; it's my art..... :lol:
