    Hello,

    Here's a clip from my most recent live performance (after an unfortunate layoff of about a year due to tendinitis). There are a few mistakes, but still very interested in general feedback and thoughts to a performance of a generally unknown first work from a master composer. I hope you enjoy!

    It will be nice to have this neglected early work on the site. You play it well (I would not expect any less). It's a bit ill-focused in the beginning - you sort of 'fall into' the first bar, and you do not sound entirely comfortable. But the trio is much better, and also the reprise after that is much more assured. Some annoying clonkers ... but ok it is live, and these things happen. I have never practiced this much but I know it is far harder than it sounds. So well done !
