I don't get it.  You are really a very fine pianist with a lovely sound (even on that upright).  Why do you go to such lengths to disort such a simple and beautiful melody and rythm?  This is really a case where the pianist gets in the way of the music.

Hm, the rubato is killing the mazurka feel.
It has to be strict, although you still can use some rubato and holding back if you like I wouldn't over do it like this. Other than that, quite good.

I really wouldn't say the mazurkas are to be played strict..

Nah, why do I bother? This assifassi-guy is nothing but a spoiled brat, who, obviously, has to compensate for something...

Well maybe not strict, but I like the rhythm quite tight and not spreaded out with 2 fermates (so to speak) in 1 measure.

And how are you concluding that fassi-assi is nothing but a spoiled brat?

I have to agree with the rest (except for the silly comments of the 1989-guy ofcourse ;) ).
The rubato is now killing the melody line and the flow of the music, never forget that its the melody what it's all about, especially in the romantic era.

Why don't you like me Gyzzzmo? :(

Ofc it shouldn't be this much rubato (Duh?), but to play a mazurka strict in tempo would be so booooring, and it kind of kills the whole idea with the mazurkas...
