The secret to this andante is the left hand.  You did some very nice things with the right, and the chordal episode was wonderfully played.  But the left hand was awful.  It has to be EXACTLY equal in tone and color throughout.  It's the background that plays off the right hand.  There were times when some notes didn't even play, sudden changes in volume, etc.  You have to practise it ad nauseam by itself until you have it under ABSOLUTE control.
