Very well played. I would prefer the prelude a little slower and the fugue a little less detached, but that is very personal. I spotted three read errors (at least deviations from the Urtext):

Prelude, bar 18, you play a G in the RH which should be F sharp
Fugue, bar 11, you play an A in the RH which should be A sharp
Fugue, bar 37, you play a D sharp in the RH which shold be C sharp.

Good voicing in the fugue, and I am happy to hear I am not the only one having problems with these impossibly difficult bars 32 and 33 :D In both P+F I would like a bit more involvement and phrasing. The fugue seems to lose momentum in the final bars and sort of peters out. Overall a good job though, and if you want this on the site, please provide your details.

Techneut, can you please specify which beat and voice each of these notes appear? I am having trouble identify them.

BTW, I am using a bad Schirmer edition, so that may be to blame for the note deviations. Schirmer isn't particularly known to have the best editions.

Sure.
Actually in the prelude it's bar 15, not bar 18 :oops: Very first top note in RH is wrong. Damn, I need glasses.
In the fugue, bar 11, it's the second beat, the second of the two sixteenths in the RH should be A sharp not A natural.
In the fugue bar 37 it's the 2nd beat, top voice RH is C sharp not D sharp.
