Do We Judge Music by Sight More Than Sound?

With an increased share of classical music consumed in various audivisual formats in relation to audio only, a relevant question to ask is whether it disturbs or enhances the musical experience of a classical composition. We have selected four distinctly different types of videos with respectable performances of the same work, Liszt’s Sonata in B minor. Listen and watch a few minutes of each and then cast your vote!

So I've been doing piano for about 9 years now... And I was wondering what level I am on.
My repetoire is:

Beethoven Pathatique Sonata, 1st and 2nd movements.
Rachmaninoff Moment Musicaux No. 5
Chopin Nocturne in E flat major
Chopin Nocturne in E minor
Bach Prelude and Fugue in C minor
Chopin Raindrop Prelude
Chopin Nocturne in C sharp minor
Beethoven Moonlight Sonata, All movements
Debussy Clair de Lune

I think these are some best pieces I've played so far. Any Idea what level I may be at? And also, and suggestionsfor pieces I should play?

Well, then I have to be the one to tell you:
It's not What you play, but How you play it. We had a member here who played all those super difficult works, but missed like 90% of the notes in 1/6 of the tempo.

Record yourself and post it, or we can't answer...

Oh ok, I understand. I'll try to record myself playing one of them today.
