I know. Many people hate this piece. But it is fun to play and I can use some feedback.

Hi Claudio,

I certainly love this piece, just like you :)

I would say the main thing that's lacking is evenness of legato, for example in the notes at the beginning of the main theme (r h 5-4-5-4-5)

Maybe practice that at a slower pace and really focus on connecting each note to the next. Perhaps try another fingering as well, to be able to re-boot your technique even more thoroughly (4-3-4-3 or 5-3-5-3?)
