    If you've recorded a new version, do me a favor and listen back to it, tapping along, making sure you have all the note (and rest!) values right and you don't wildly fluctuate the tempi. I believe such errors are just as disturbing as wrong notes, maybe more. I also believe that it's possible to play with expression AND get the rhythms right AND not sound like a metronome :wink:

    Thank you Kaila for your kind words ! :D

    Chris, I do not intend to record a new full version that might be not as good as (or worse than) this one. :wink:
    I want just to re-record some passages for editing this one: bars 5, 15-16 and 80-81 as mentioned above, and also 42. Except for bar 5, these rhythm issues are also in my recording on PS site.

    Hm... you should aspire to get better with each recording.

    That's ok, as long as the edits cannot be heard.

    Yes probably. No reason not to fix them though. A new recording should be significantly better the the old one. Or we should say the quality standards for a rerecording are higher.

    This must be the most often re-recorded piece in PS history by now :) Or maybe that honour goes to your previous Schubert recording.

    I think this one has improved on points - though it is hard to keep up with all the versions. It is still far from ideal rhythm-wise but nonetheless has much to commend it, and I believe this is good enough for the site.

    Thank you Chris ! :D
    I will do still better on next time ! :p
    But likely not before some years. My previous version was recorded more than 4 years ago. :wink:
