To be honest it did seem to grind on a bit, too little variation in the thematic material, saved by changes of key here and there. Even when the theme changed the harmonic rhythm seemed to follow the same path. Part of the problem is the rendering itself - sounded as if the pedal was down the whole time, blurring the rhythm and harmony, didn't give the reiterated notes much of a chance to bring out the rhythmic inflexions particularly in the bass. A pianist might leave the pedal up and play some of those notes staccato. The rendering didn't render the dynamic changes well - hardly any difference between forte and piano. 

But then I have to confess not being too enamoured of the natural minor scale, no leading note so cadences are always weak. All this is of course, just my opinion, Let's see what others think.....

Well, I thought this was a nice piece in a style reminiscent of Ludovico Einaudi. Perhaps a little bit too much repetition,. Maybe a more concise and shortened version would have more impact, but I think: good job.

One question, how do you create those piano note visuals?

That's Musescore's website feature called "upload to YouTube".
