Hello Miguel,
Welcome to Piano Society. :)
I am not familiar with this music, but it sounds confidently-played.

Well played. I think there are some little inaccuracies here and there, but they do not bother much.
I respect rather than love Casella as a piano composer. This piece is effective though not especially impressive. He could occasionally produce some witty or profound pieces (I like Luca Ballerini's CD on Naxos, and the Two Contrasts played by Hamelin).
