A very challenging piece. I liked your color changes in the B section and I see you have some great ideas.

I will give you some comments about what I heard, but keep in mind that I do not play this piece (although someday I would like to) and one of my favorite interpretations is by Jason Vieaux and probably I am comparing your interpretation to his as my model.

You begin exuberantly, which is great! When the melody comes in, the accompaniment seems to compete a bit too much with it. Perhaps you can lighten up on it so melody sings out in a more dominant way. I wondered if you were going a bit faster than you wished because at times, when you moved up to the high end of the fretboard, you hesitated. Sometimes when I play, I hesitate in the same way when I want to be *really* sure I have my fingers placed right. Then...after lots of practice, I don't hear that hesitation any more until my teacher points it out to me. :oops: In a tough transition, you might need to make sure you are not delaying the rhythm or find a musical way to give yourself more time in the way you phrase it. The reason I notice, is because it is a particular problem I have and my teacher works often on it with me. ;-)

I really liked the B section. Your ideas about color change make it interesting and expressive. You might consider a more gradual change or transition to sul tasto rather than making a leap from regular position unless it is a break between major phrases. When it is an abrupt change, it is in a way shocking to the listener and is signaling something important. If that isn't the intent, then choosing a more nuanced change may bring the mood to where you want it without a jump from one to the other. Again, I notice this because I have a tendency to do the same thing! :lol:

Overall, a great job...I can see that you have put a *lot* of work into this piece. :chaud:
Someday I would hope to play it as well as you can. :-D
:bravo: Thank you for sharing it with us!
