    Very good ! The sound is a bit constricted, but it seems the ear adjusts after the first page or so, and there are some wrong notes here and there, nothing drastic though, and I think a reading mistakes in the LH of the final bars. But a good and solid interpretation, confidently played. I liked the way you bring out the LH melody in the development section. Never realized that was there ! But you can do that a bit more subtle though, it comes out a bit too rough in places.

    I would have liked a bit more long-line phrasing, there is room for a 'luftpause' every couple of bars (I think this was discussed in detail in a previous thread about someone's recording of this piece). Apart from that, nothing to niggle.

    Seeing this is your last word on it, I better go put it up the site, right ?

    I like it, you bring out the melody line very well and clear. Some deep bass notes of the beginning of the left hand arpeggios are missing, but my take on that piece is not better either in that.
    I did not found a reading mistake in the LH at the final bars, however in both arpeggio repetitions at the end (the first arpeggio should be played 4 times, the second 7 times) you played one less (3 instead 4 and 6 instead 7).

    Beside this, it sounds very good to me!

    Could be that's what I heard - I knew something was wrong there. I also think that in the up-down arpeggios your LH plays only up to A flat instead of C but I am not sure, it may be an illusion.

    Everything sounds good to me. I do not hear that any bass notes are missing in the beginning.
    Nice job, Johnmar.

    That was fantastic! The S, A, T & B voices were singing. I hesitate to offer any critical comments; the first few bars felt a little choppy; perhaps a pp opening would be smoother. The latter 85% of it needs no significant change. Bravo!
