As much as I enjoy exploring lesser-known works, this is one of those super-popular pieces that I couldn't resist learning!

Hope you all enjoy it.

Nice playing :) I think you chose a good tempo. You could be a hair faster if you want, but this is good. I think popular pieces are popular for a reason, so no shame in playing those ;)

Beautiful, I enjoyed that very much!

Rather than trying a faster tempo, I think you can treat the pulse even more freely than you do - stay longer on the chords, go forward more on the eighth-note passages etc. This is supposed to depict some sort of (day)dreaming - a still, peaceful activity, but where all sorts of sudden emotional shifts can go on underneath the surface.

You play this so well, but I think experimenting with bigger contrasts is where you could find things to enrich your interpretation.

Thanks for the feedback! Going back and listening again, I definitely agree with you. A lot more freedom could be used in this piece.
