It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

You're right, Scott - and of course all these expressive devices are inter-related anyway

I picked on the rubato, but, really, that's an incomplete description. I actually don't disagree at all with Travis - the piece CAN work with rubato too. Just listen to Rachmaninoff playing it! I think what bugged me more was that Yuja's rubato was allied to a relatively quick overall tempo. Rachmaninoff actually takes MORE rubato, but his slower basic tempo seems to allow the rubato to fit in without disrupting the general "affect", if you will, and consistency of feeling. At least that's the way I'm hearing it right now. Who knows how I'd hear it in another month? ;-)
