I'm sorry for not posting sooner, alireza-zamani. This was a thoughtful and sensitive performance, with good articulation and subtle dynamics throughout.

I think it could be even more expressive. Not in a superficial way... you have a good interpretation and a lovely idea of the style already but I think you could play deeper into the keys somehow, and this would produce a more pure tone, with less sound.

Also, you piano is very out of tune.

A very nice performance. The piano is doing you no favours, though, so step 1 is to get it tuned.

There is a lot of question/answer type figures in this Sarabande, and I felt at times that you were answering the wrong question, so to speak, or mumbling your answers. Perhaps you could consider it anew with this aspect more to the fore. Nothing major, but it will make for a more cohesive performance.

Are you doing the whole Partita?

 Thank you for listening to my performance and your kind comments. I had played that piece on the old piano that I have recently purchased.  Unfortunately due to my current circumstances, that was all I could afford!I agree that my piano requires some tuning. I hope I can add the other movements soon.

Dear j_menz
I have played the whole partita.
I would appreciate if you could give more details about your idea.
