The only thing I can really say (because it was well played and very intimate)... is that in a couple of parts, I think the left hand gets a little too loud compared to the melody.

The left hand to me in this piece should be like a good neighbour - you know they're there, but they never bother you. It should be smooth and passive, and just a couple of times I felt like it was just a tad too obtrusive to the melody.

Having said that - that's the only thing I could really fault for this recording, and it's not much of a fault at that either.
