This is a recording on an electric piano of "La fille aux cheveux de lin" I recently made as part of my piano lessons. It's not perfect, but I won't give you my excuses.
You can check it out by clicking here if you would like to listen.

Reading that honestly made me very happy.
I'm glad you like it.

Thank you. Now that I've "finished" this one, I'm in the process of figuring out what I'd like to play next.
I'm thinking of going with either Brahms or another piece by Debussy.

You should try Scriabin. Sort of a mix between Chopin and Debussy. Very "nighttime" sounding, if that makes sense.

Way to Go Bubbly!!  Now that the first one is under your belt... Let the SoundCloud float with rapturous notes.

Really, just excellent.  I didn't hear any bad notes, you'd have to point them out.  Glad to see you join the music cats that play around here.

I wouldn't have recognized it by name, but this is one of the sample pieces on my grandma's/now my keyboard. I always thought it was really nice, and you did a great job, Josh! Also, the Desper quote in your signature is wonderful.

Less than stellar? Not a bit of it. Proficiat, sir!

As for a follow-up I'd endorse TRHPWBB's suggestion of something by Scriabin, this for example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSsKJIzwapA   

But at the end of the day it's your choice. I can't advise on Brahms but I remember enjoying playing (after a fashion) Debussy's La cathédrale engloutie and Ravel's Pavane pour une infante défunte...

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I'll definitely check them out.

There aren't any bum notes (that I'm aware of, at least), there's just a few pedaling and timing things I would do differently.

Thanks, Zach. I, too, think the Desper quote is wonderful.  Cheesy

Oh wow, this is incredible. I can't say I have any criticisms, this is extremely well-done. Keep it up!

I tried to play this song last night and couldn't even get past the first four notes.
