Hi Chris,

These performances sound excellent! I listened to #s 1,2,3, and 6 because these are ones that I have performed in the past.

On #1, you do a great job bringing out the melodic line while keeping the lower voices subdued. My only suggestion here would be to try to keep the upper notes in the right hand from sounding accented at times, especially the last note in the cadences.

#2: Fantastic, nothing to criticize here! Great sense of character.

#3: Great liveliness and precision. I remember when I was learning this, it took me months to play this without it sounding like kids running around and tripping over everything in sight.

#6: You convey a very nice ceremonial quality in this piece. The only suggestion I have would be aim for more clarity in the left hand in the B section,

Now that you mention it, I realize I've still not quite kicked my habit of accenting the last note in a phrase. This will be a point of attention if I ever redo this set (not sure if I will).

Indeed this one is not easy at all. Took me quite a while to get recorded satisfactorily.

I guess you mean use less pedal, because otherwise I think all is clearly articulated here.
