Any comments welcome. Especially regarding agogics -- did I take too much liberty? You certainly would not enjoy dancing to this any more... On the other hand, when I try to stick to the metrum, all the feeling gets lost. How do you play this one? Well, I look forward to any kind of tips.

I dance and I think you have kept the dance like quality without it becoming metronomic. It has a sweet tender sound, like a lullaby almost.

Wow, very impressive!
I thought this was just a well-known but boring piece, since it's impossible to put much feeling into the melody line. You showed me that it is actually possible. I never tried to put this much liberty in it. Worked surprisingly well!
