  1. You play well. But for my taste it’s too school performance of Bach. Too smooth and correct.
    You should look for a more imaginative and colourful sound in this music.

    Beethoven I liked more. Sometimes it sounds pretty well. You are very talented. And I’m sure you have a good teacher. But you need more time to study music.

    Will be glad to see you at the next PianoArt competition and follow your professional growth!

  2. Johann Sebastian Bach: Prelude and Fugue no. 1 Book II.
    I agree with Mr. Slakva that you should look for a more imaginative and colorful sound in the Prelude and for a more hidden polyphony.
    In Fugue you are nervous and in a hurry.

    Ludwig Van Beethoven: Sonata op. 53 no. 21 «Waldstein», mov.
    You must make difference when you play a crochet (a quarter note) or a quaver (eight-note) staccato-like in 3rd and 4th measures.
    You don’t play clean enough and you change the tempo of the movement too often. There is too much pedal.
