This is very good but you frequently distort the rhthym of the melody; triplets become one 8th and two 16ths and many of the grace notes are played too fast imo. But your overall conception is excellent and you convey the spirit of the dance. Good melodic phrasing. Now you just need to plan your spontaneity a bit more carefully.  :)

Thanks for the comments, arensky! Much appreciated. :) I actually haven't looked at the score in close to 2 years (it was the first mazurka I learned, and I've always kept it in my fingers), so I'll give it a look and rework the rhythms you refer to.
