    I think this is the most 'light-hearted' of all the nocturnes - it always makes me feel good by the time I get to the end.

    There's a few slips, inaudible notes, and unclear ornaments, but...I know...enough with excuses. This is the best I could do. Comments appreciated.

    That is beautifully played Monica. Very relaxed and calm, especially in the quiter sections. Also these tricky double-note configurations come off really well, the few tiny slips hardly bother. If I can say one thing is that there could be just a little more freedom, of course not so much as to destroy your solid swaying rhythm - just a tiny bit more rubato and some breathing space between phrases.
    But that is not a must, it is great as it is.
    Class job ! You are getting better with every recording. I'll put it up straight away.

    Well done, Monica. The only thing I would suggest is in agreement with Chris, a bit more of ending of each phrase. I enjoyed!

    Beautiful played - calm and dreamery! It was a real pleasure to listen.
    Also in the very soft played parts you never loose control, all notes come clearly - very well done.

    And I admire how fast you record new things, and that with ever raising quality!

    Thank you, Olaf.
    ( I've been practicing this piece for a long time. :wink: )
