The Chopin; I used to play this at college and performed it from memory back in 1984.
At the start of the right hand, just after the semiquaver rest, I would try and get those semis a little more even? the first few sound like an ornamentation on the first 3 notes. When the theme reappears - about the 3rd line? - if you note the music, the upper notes have accents, so they need to project more. I feel the D flat major (slow) section needs more expression & rubato, but you are a very young pianist, and this will come out in your playing with age.
Well done again
Some very promising playing, with the basic rhythms and structure clearly there. However, the pedalling seems to blur the melody line in places, and makes the normally very clear rather confused. Another slight criticism is that there seems to be some rather abrupt changes in tempo during the beginning section of the piece, and after the more lyrical section in the centre.
I'd work on crispening up the chords in the first and third sections (if you'll forgive my parlance), and possibly lighten the usage of the pedal.
