Oh boy, it's so much easier to find fault with others than get it right oneself.
Ain't that true ...
But since you ask for feedback, yes the recording environment did not work in your favour, acoustically, and the performances were overall short of precision (nobody would ask for perfection and I'm not). If I was producing your video recordings, would have suggested focussing on just one piece and getting a best-you-can take rather doing quite so many, and would look for a place with at the very least, a wall behind you to help focus the sound towards the audio capture, which anyways will always be poor if on the camera. A nice outdoor sound is possible, though personally I don't see the point, but needs far more thought - and of course as player you can't hear how the sound is as it records. In fact, you can't do this whatever the environment, but outside its just much harder. For me at least, also its really uninspiring to play out of doors and I would not feel relaxed and able to focus on making music. To me, in most of them you didn't look relaxed and happy with your playing which may have been part of why there were some aspects of the performance that would really want some improvement, if you want people to enjoy your music making.
Better sound would be had from a separate audio recorder, synchronised later with the video, and the camera's audio muted.
Re the pieces, well firstly you have no medieval piece there, the earliest are renaissance. I wouldn't worry about which Bach they are and which BWV numbers, because we all have to get those well known pieces first, before trying less known repertoire that would intrigue the likes of us 'Campers. But, if we play well known things we really have to be careful to get them right, because few people, knowing or interested in them, will like or benefit from a performance which wants polishing.
So to conclude, please feel encouraged to try some or all the above ideas and those of other commentators, and post more in due course. It may not necessarily sound like it but we really are trying to be positive and encourage you to do better!
