Pretty good. 

Overall, I'd like to hear more contrast between the three sections.  Particularly the middle you could afford to be more lyrical as it is sandwiched between two more intense sections. 

For the beginning French Overture, just be careful not to cut time short when you have rests.  In fact I thought you could hold some of the chords (especially at the phrase endings) a bit longer.   It is a dramatic opening, and the chords with longer values plus the rests in between add to that effect. 

Take the fugue a bit slower until you can control it a bit more.  Clarity over speed. The G maj chord is the end of the Andante, the Fugue starts with the first 16th following that.  There needs to be a breath between the two because this is the initial statement of the fugal subject and we need to be clear on how it starts.  I think you could made the last trill longer - it is after all the final cadence of a very involved movement.

Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
