    Hi Uri. as I wasn't awfully complimentary about your previous Chopin (on pianostreet; I'm ronde des sylphes there) I think it's only fair that I comment on this, which I think is clearly better. In both videos it is obvious you have good, clean technique. Again, I don't think your piano is terribly sympathetic, and that doesn't help with dynamic contrast. I'd aim to take advantage of moments of repose in the central section (e.g. around 1.46-1.48) and stretch the tempo out there, but I understand from your comments re interpretation of Chopin on pianostreet that you are not a believer in big rubato, and as that's a personal choice which you clearly have an opinion on, my comments are likewise only an opinion also and not a matter of absolute interpretation. I think this is considerably more "ready" than the sonata movement; of course it's technically easier, but I think as a performance it would be more than acceptable in every sense apart from the limitations of the instrument, which sounds rather bright and not especially refined.
