Overall a very commanding and impressive performance, convincing to me though I'm not by any means a Mendelssohnian. I particularly liked your subtle dynamic nuances and nimble passage playing. Your Andante intro evoked a certain sad grandeur. In the Presto, it seemed maybe you got a bit tired toward the end so that clarity and evenness suffered slightly, but you basically met the technical demands well. Many of the 16th arpeggio runs are very elegantly played and well-balanced against the left-hand melody. IMHO this is a performance whose strong musical intention diverts attention away from its few technical infelicities. I very much enjoyed listening.
