Wow, this is nice. There is so much going on that I cannot pick out any obvious errors (that is if there are any). Welcome to the site. I am sure that you will receive much better critique from our vetern-pianists. -JG

No it's not bad at all ! I just forgot to comment on it so far :oops:

You do a great job, it is probably the less-than-pleasing sound quality that might put people off. It sounds a bit like a toy piano in places, and far away. The coughing at the start and bench noises half way don't help... You should really have cut out that cough.

You are fully up to this music's considerable technical demands. But it's a bit wild and woolly. A little more poise and refinement would be good, you take rather more risks than necessary and as a result you slip more than you need to. Gently does it - Ravel does not need to sound like Sorabji !

This is an exceptionally difficult piece and you clearly had no trouble handling it. Intelligent phrasing, balance, awesome technique. It's a shame the sound quality was so poor given the very high quality of your performance. Keep up the excellent work.

I too agree that it is a very good performance of this difficult piece, both musically and technically. Just a pity about the sound quality. Any chance to re-record with better recording equipment?
