Good performance.

I like you're not over dramatic, while it is still clear to see the feeling you're putting into the piece.

I'll disregard the Psalm 1005 Wink

Whatever helps you be the best pianist you can be, who cares right.

That was in my piano teacher's church (so of course there was bible stuff). What a piano, it's crazy I can use it for free!

kid
Since I may smoke, chew, and go to jail, I don't think I am deserving of that title any more!

I seriously understand why you don't like Chopin. I think it goes without saying that I love his music but I have more of an admiration and profound appreciation for him and his music rather than a buzz and ultra-hype about it.
I hope you're doing well!

Very good! You have a pleasant tone, and navigated the technical challenges of this piece with grace. 

There is no need to lift your foot all the way off the pedal every time you change.  Your foot also needs to gracefully return the pedal to its damper-off position, so it does not thump when you make changes.  If the trap work is so regulated, it is even possible to have strings fully damped and your foot supporting the pedal just millimeters from its stop point, that way you avoid a thumpy pedal.

I'll disregard the Psalm 1005 Wink

The psalmist must have been more industrious than we were led to believe  Grin

Interesting thoughts. Thanks for the feedback and the encouragement, I will take a look at that later.
