Hi Chris,
that´s overall a very nice playing. I have enjoyed it very much. Most passages seem very well elaborated to me. I agree also to the lack of differenciation between the p-pp-ppp grades, but there also are many very nice dynamic moments in your interpretations. So, bravo to that very good job!

Thanks for the praise Andreas. I do my best with dynamics, but shades of pianissimo are just not possible on my instrument with its heavy and rather uneven action, without the risk od dropping notes or uneven playing. Unless resorting to una corda, which I don't like because it deadens the tone. Of course now we'll get a whole discussion about due corde, 2.718281828459 corde, and finding a bit of as yet unused felt on the hammers, etc.... but my foot is not that subtle :D

Well, there are two philosophies among the pianists, I think. One side says, a ppp should never be played with una corda, only if the composers prescribes una corda. A good pianists should be able to differenciate among p-pp-ppp without una corda. The other side says, it´s a legal matter to use the left pedal also for differenciation of the piano-grades. I´m just counting myself to that last group. But, of course, you need an instrument it is possible to realize that and last but not least that´s a pure matter of taste, isn´t it?
