I relearned this on short notice, so I did not perform it from memory... But I still think I did it better here than I did almost seven years ago, when I first played it! I hope you enjoy.

Great performance of one of my favourite piano works by Brahms! I can see you put a lot of thought and emotion in your interpretation. If I had to complain about one thing I think that when the first theme returns after the middle section it sounded a bit clunky. Otherwise, awesome performance!
