Overall, very nice! I usually hear it just a touch slower. The one thing you may want to work on, and I'm sure the recording device flattened your dynamics some, is dynamic contrast throughout. There should be a much, much bigger difference between pp and ff. Good work so far!

Hi whitewing,

I like your overall tempo, how you take time, and your sense of pulse.
But I think that you can be more diverse in using dynamics. For example, your forte in Measure 4 can be stronger, and more powerful.

I agree with the dynamic comments above; I'd also recommend you use a touch less pedal.
You want the pedal to be barely noticed; it makes the very fine dirt stick together with everything else better, but too much and it becomes gooey mud that nobody wants to experience Wink
