I meant that rest, which is at a place you wouldn't expect it to be when listening to the piece for the first time.

Anyway, I guess people who post here are interested in more specific info on their playing. So my opinion is that you did a great job and that technically you seem to handle the piece well. I kind of missed the feeling of the whole. While there is continuity between the phrases, I feel there is little continuity between the different sections of the piece. Now I know that is kind of abstract and difficult to explain further, and it is also hard to suggest something. But by letting the piece mature, this will come by itself I believe. How long have you been playing it?
