Thanks for sharing! I didn't know this arrangement. Seems like an awesome piece to give to students.

Well done! I agree that this arrangement is really nice, and you play it very convincingly. Perhaps you can vary your touch and dynamics a bit more - at the moment every note is equally loud. When the right hand is repeating notes with the pinky or thumb (which is almost the whole time), I think those repeated notes could use a lighter touch.
