Just had a listen to your new recording of this prelude and I must say that it is IMO a vast improvement over the first one. Nice and controlled. Indeed I can hear that you've practiced this quite carefully over time with the metronome. Much clearer and more even fingerwork too. I do have a few thoughts/suggestions, however, mostly concerning interpretation:
1. I know that most editions have the pedalling indicated for the entire measure, taken off at the last beat, but to me it sounds just slightly muddy (assuming this is the way you are pedalling), which is why I like the way Cortot marked it in his edition, taken off right after the second beat. Or flutter pedalling might also work. IMO the objective is to get across more of the crisp staccato element of the chords/octaves. On this note, another comment I had was that the accents on the first beat should be crisper, but I do hear you impart some accent there, so this might be improved by just being a tad lighter on the pedal.
2. I'm impressed by the overall consistency in your tempo. To my ears, it perhaps almost sounds a bit too motoric, needing a bit more romantic recklessness and abandon. But now that you've done some fine fingerwork, it should be much easier to achieve that freedom.
3. Though most of it is quite clean, there are just a few passages that could be just a bit neater or clearer (e.g., from 13 to 17, there seem to be a fair amount of slips, especially in the left hand, and the notes don't sound in a few places, particularly at the end of phrases). Of course it goes without saying that in a piece this difficult, some leeway is necessary and I certainly didn't find it a distraction in your performance.
4. Maybe do a bit more with dynamics, particularly at the climaxes -- it sounds just a bit monochromatic to my ears. Easier said than done of course.
Anyway, just my thoughts such as they are. Obviously, in commenting on your playing I am not raising my own playing up in any way (which btw, you had some very valid criticisms of). It's just fun to listen and pontificate
. IMHO this would be perfectly acceptable for the site if you plan on it going up (of course it's not my decision). Again, nice work overall.
