Thanks very much for the comments.
There are many staccato-quavers, especially in the second and third movement, which you play too long and not staccato at all (especially the ending of the second movement - a fermata on the last note is simply n o t indicated, and doesn't fit either).
Oh well. As they say, you win some, you lose some.

I understand what you're saying here and how Beethoven marks it. However, I chose to do it differently. A staccato gesture for me loses the grandness of this movement. I did experiment with this and didn't like it. (Incidentally, I did also listen to your performance and this is one of the things I didn't like. A short staccato sounds dinky and prissy to me here.) Same thing with the fermata. Though many nowadays will disagree with me, I'm with the old school in that I don't think a performer needs to treat the score as a bible that can't be deviated from.
In the first movement, there are a some bars where you loose your tempo (e.g. 44 and 46) and some passages would require some additional practice (e.g. 107-114: left and right hand not together).
In 44 and 46, I deliberately do a ritard for dramatic purposes. I agree with you about 107-114 needing more work; with that leap it's difficult to make it all sound even.
The second movement has some crescendis which are not indicated, these rather disturb the indicated dynamics (e.g. bar 13-14).
Again, in the final performance, I don't think one needs to be constrained by the score. Those crescendi I do deliberately. A performer's individual interpretation is what makes playing the piano interesting. Incidentally, when I listen to others' playing I never listen with score; my attitude is that someone should convince me, whatever way they play it.
In the third movement you left out whole passages (bars 51-64 and 147-159) - maybe this was not careless and you have a different edition, but I found some more bars to play in that movement.
Oops, you're right. Thanks for pointing this out. I will correct this.
Thanks again for the comments.
