It is a charming little piece and you play it well, very enjoyable. I am impressed at how your rapid finger technique has developed since you have been posting here. It is crystal clear but musically expressive. Do you think having very big hands and long fingers is an asset or a liability in close finger work ? Did you have to work hard at it ?

Nice playing! I had first come across this piece in a black-and-white video of Cziffra playing live. Can't seem to find the video, sadly.  :-\ It's a beautiful piece.

Thank you very much! :) And no I don`t think having big hands is a problem for close finger work. Rachmaninoff had really big hands and he plays this piece very magical :).

Thanks ! :) First time for me was hearing Rachmaninoff playing it. Instantly fell in love with the piece and with his playing :)

Fantastic!  It's like walking into the market and being mesmerized in the varieties of fresh food and spices. 

I agree with Ted, in that your ability to create multitudes of colour and shape within rapid passages is very impressive. 
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
