    I am currently studying this piece now, but I am very familiar with it. The beginning was excellent but I felt you were rushing the right hand, just a tad. As for the first cadenza, you started off great, but a little slip occurred. That just proves to us your human being. But remember, as a pianist NEVER repeat the mistakes, or start over bar earlier, just keep going and dont stop, for all you know the audience didn't hear it. The next section in B major, is when your supposed to play piu vivo, a little faster, so make sure you make that contrast between the first and second the time the theme is repeated. The FF section was well executed, but I would prefer to hear the bass notes a little more ( E, D sharp, D Natural, C sharp, C Natural, etc) and the second cadenza was carried out perfectly. And the last section, take it a little slower, its the near the end of the masterwork so dont rush it that much, let the audience have an extra couple of seconds in their "dream of love"
    Overall great performance but what pisses me off is how fast the audience started clapping, after all, silence is music as well.
    all the best,
