Johannes Brahms: Fantasies

After the Eight Piano Pieces Op. 76 (1878) and the Rhapsodies Op. 79 (1879) Brahms had another long break from the piano.
The Fantasies are the first pieces belonging to the composerís late years. Composed mostly in the summer of 1892, they were published in two volumes that year by Simrock in Berlin.
A month before publication, the set encompassed five rather than seven pieces, but Brahms added two pieces at the last minute.
Considered as a whole, the work makes a coherent and persuasive sequence, with two capriccios in D-minor as first and last pieces, and three of the other pieces in E-major.

Hi all,
Last week I played the Brahms Op 116 Fantasies in preparation for a recital in Paris, later this summer. I uploaded it to Youtube in 3 chunks:
Numbers 1-3:
Numbers 4-6:
And number 7:
What do you think? Is it good enough to play at Saint-Merri?
Thank you,

Here are the first three parts of the Op 116 Fantasies


question Brahms experts: Caprices Op.116. Which one is the most difficult?

I love those caprices.
They are not easy at all and I'd like to learn them in order of difficulty.

Could you please tell me your opinions please?
