All these times you have (rightly) chided me for sacrificing accuracy to speed, and now you are doing that exact same thing. Time to get my own back
Now I see, you still don´t know me completely. I wouldn´t make a general rule of "sacrificing accuracy to speed", it just depends on the kind of piece from my view. And, you know, sometimes it can be very good to come back to yourself!
This is a very personal version, with many nice things. Maybe a little impulsive in places but ok, that is your temperament.
Thanks, Chris, I can be very fiery, that´s cool, isn´t it?!
However I find quite some weak and even wrong notes in the runs, and IIRC a couple elsewhere too.
I can´t detect any wrong notes (besides bar 117, 2nd beat, which I have mentioned above)! So, you would have to tell me exactly where they are!
Seems like 3 hours preparation, even for a piece you know backwards (which I can hear you do) is just not enough.
O.k., o.k., may be, may be... I have to admit, when I played the piece during a piano competition being 14 years old, I played the runs much more "civilized" (and slower), but today I think, for me that´s not, what that piece wants to express. So, from a musical view (concerning my interpretation) I´m really quite satisfied with that version.
May be I want to play out the upper voice a bit more in the pp-part next time. I think, that and the bars 37, 38 (also in the reprise), which could be played a bit more accurate, are the only "weak places" in my version above I can discover until know.
I think I'll go record this one too now
I´m still licking my chops to give you a nice critique, Chris!
Seriously, that´s a nice idea!

Maybe we should have 'Like' and 'Do no like' buttons like on YouTube ?
Well, that could "bring atmosphere into the barrack" as we say in German ("Stimmung in die Bude bringen"), but wouldn´t attest to differentiated respective elaborated reflections on the pieces, which should be part of a good piano-forum, isn´t it?
