You have a lot of very specific pedal markings. How strict are you about following them?

I am quite particular about pedal in my piano parts. I often prefer a blurred sound so that the harmonies merge. However, I realize that each performance space is unique and I would hope that each pianist would use best judgment as to how strictly to follow my markings. If a particular markings doesn’t make sense to you, please email with questions. There are sometimes typos in the score.
