...eh? The link's...erm...there?!

leonald, this is quite good stuff! Quite powerful stuff!

The only quirks I don't really like involve the amount and extent of your rubato. IMO, a tiny bit too much, esp. in the first half, which I find:

1. Takes off the intensity almost completely
2. Distorts the rhythm, while also
3. Chopping the line

Then again, this can be an issue with the recording equipment that doesn't capture the nuances. Apart from this, I'm sure you can play that pp section near the middle much softer than that - it's a magical mirage, that one, and needs to sound like one ^^

That's me though. Otherwise, I like everything else in this! Thanks for posting!

Pretty good, but I think you use far too much rubato, which completely slows it down. You need to pick up the pace a little bit =)
