Debussy's "Clair de Lune": a good interpretation

I'm finicky when it comes to interpretations of Claude Debussy's "Clair de Lune." My favorite rendition of it is here, but below, I've embedded an interpretation that I find both beautiful and respectable, mainly because it avoids the trap of being overly hasty, which is the downfall of so many inferior attempts at playing this lovely piece.

Cho Seong-jin apparently won a competition with his rendition of this piece. I'd say the win was well deserved. He approaches "Clair de Lune" with great sensitivity and perceptivity.
