I agree, this is fabulous playing! Congratulations and thanks!
And the recorded sound is just fantastic. One only hopes that in the future you will be able to make videos that are as professionally produced when it comes to the visual element...

If I could wish for anything in your playing (since you ask for comments) it would be that you'd explore a more leggiero approach in the Chopin etudes. Near the end in the op 10 no 5, there are one or two places where you really relax and use a very light and delicate tone, which is absolutely wonderful. Without these moments, in my opinion these pieces become too overpowering.

And do you feel the same way with op.10 no.4 ? I have recently significantly lowered the tempo in order to make it more articulated, but its at the same time a little heavier i think

I do. But I am sure you had very good reasons to slow it down. I am not sure tempo is the whole answer, I think it should be possible to get what I am after with a not-extremely-fast tempo.

I am glad you listened to my thoughts and only hope that you keep experimenting! All best wishes,
