David, I like this version much better! It sounds much more coherent and less breathless.
Oh, thank you, I feel honoured, since David is an excellent artist on this page and his opinion means much to me.
Your playing of the A material at the return (after the B section) was REALLY well played (especially before it repeats)!
Hm, I like my A-part before the repeat more, because I think, the bars 64-68 compared with the parallel place in the reprise are more decently played. Despite of that, I don´t notice too much differences between the first and the second A-section. But I will reconsider that.
You play the B section with a curious bit of Vienese Waltz rhytmic jilt to it. Any comment on that?
Yes, for me the B-section has a bit of the character of a dance. Of course, not of a real dance (just the origin lies there in a dance), but something like a "dance of life", which expresses all the Schubertian suffering, resignation and the (hopeless) eruptive attempts to fight against the destiny.
I wish you could hit that penultimate chord without a hesitation but I know its difficult.
Yes, really, I always beat on some wrong notes, if I want to come in very sudden in that penultimate chord. But, I think, a little hesitation so shortly before the end is also a good marking of end.
(Also, I could have sworn you are playing Gb major chords as intro into the B section instead of my recommended F# major chords
Especially since there are so different keys to play comparing a Gb major chord and a f-sharp-major chord.
Thank you for your comment.
