Thank you for the help, you three!
Now I actually think I did rush the G-sharp a bit. I've been comparing two videos for the past ten minutes -
one is Horowitz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpzZ0epqKwE
and the other Yuja Wang: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwpyZqqZODk
Their style is completely opposite from one another, but I believe their rhythm is the same. It just sounds different because Wang plays very sharp and staccato, whereas Horowitz is more legato. But listening back to my little test recording, I think my second version more closely matches these two recordings. Now I just have to nail down whether I want to play it legato or staccato. Right now, I'm sort of in between.
And yes, I should not have paused after bar 2. I'll correct that. Thanks for pointing it out.
