The D major is a re-recording. Still not very good but less awful than the previous version. That damn prelude is the bane of my existence
Olaf is going to tell me that it is bit better than before but still not good enough. And he will be right as always. Better keep digging at it.
Oh sh*t, what for a reputation I have
Since you know what I liked to write, I don't need to comment the Dmajor P&F
And, if that prelude is the bane of your existence, than I propose that we exchange our problems. From me, you would get my problem with Chopin g minor ballade- because that is the bane of my existence.
Nevertheless, commments on D major Prelude: is really better than your first take, especially the lh hand part is consistent. Still, I could swear you take the pedal on that bars (and only there) that make trouble in the right hand, and that make the thing a bit blurry on those bars.
In bar 27 I started to comment a wrong note until I realized that was me who played always a wrong note there, and you are correct!
Fugue: I like that slower but steady tempo! In bar 4 /5 I missed the middle notes c#/d in right hand. Some lh 32 notes are still weak, but I know how crazy it is to be forced to play fast with 4th finger lh.
I know I repeat myself, but cannot understand why someone puts ornaments in a fugue theme, but not consistently throughout the fugue. You surely play the ornaments as in your score, mine is Peters Urtext, the single one ornament is in bar 20 and 22 (there as elaborated ornament). That is also more logical to me that way - same ornament for every theme appearing, or no ornament at all.
g minor Prelude: Is well played considering the difficulty it takes in using all fingers, and trills also in left hand. The rh trills are very well executed, in an synchronizing manner (32th notes or whatever?), because of that it sounds calm. The lh trills sound a bit strained, not only in lh, but too in rh in those bars, and some 32 notes in some bars were weak. The fugue starts, although the prelude did not faded out completely.
Fugue: I like very much, especially how you phrase the fugue theme whenever it appears!
E flat minor Prelude: I admire how well you stay in the slow groove, never could do that! According to my score, you left out the last lh chord in bar 12, and a short fumble in rh bar 31. Otherwise nothing but to praise!
Fugue: Great! My score has two alternatives, one notation with 5 sharps, another with 6 flats. Needs much concentration to come through that 4 pages without slips or so, strong playing!
At the end, I really tend to niggle and niggle, but that´should not overshadow my admiration for your achievements, especially on Bach, especially on the fugues! You seem to have no difficulty to manage to play complex and dense contrapunctual stuff, that's simply great!
