An interesting thing is that recording is much easier than playing in front of real people but still it "stimulates" us to make stupid mistakes. Just imagine how bad it could be when trying to play for someone you know (or don't know) for the first time: you heart is pounding, hands shaking etc. I remember that feeling
But 2nd and 3rd times were much better! Just need to warm up properly. I'm lucky enough to have a music room with a guitar at my work, so I can ask some of my colleagues to listen to my playing
Ideally, when I feel that a piece is learned I'd like to play it it someone at least once (but I don't really follow this idea yet since no piece is ever learned completely). I think that's a great stress test. Once passed you'll be able to play it well in front of a larger audience.
So, what I mean here that sooner or later we'll probably play for other people. It is better to start getting used to it early.
As of your submission: solid work, but in Andante all damps are ignored.
The end of Affettuoso is very intriguing
