Hello,
Here's another two clips from a recent live performance from Bach's French Suite in B-minor BWV 814 . They are the sarabande and minuet/trio movements and are probably performed a bit more improvisatory than is generally the practice these days. I hope it is still in good taste - as always, please give me your thoughts about what you hear. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy!

Bach - BWV 814 - French Suite No.3 in B minor - 3: Sarabande
Bach - BWV 814 - French Suite No.3 in B minor - 5: Minuet - Trio

Wow, I am impressed! This is classic. You must be proud of your accomplishment, if I were you I would be. It takes something special to voice Bach with passion and clarity. Something that not a common pianist has. Give yourself a pat on the bach (sorry I couldn't resist the play with words :roll: :oops: )

Thanks for the kind replies - I still marvel at how Bach can write such seemingly simple lines, but they're so deceptively tricky to capture. Who would you consider to be the best Bach interpreter? I still can never get enough of Andras Schiff's playing of anything with J.S. Bach attached to the performance. But then again, I just can't get enough Schiff! lol

I totally agree, both regarding Bach and AndrĂ¡s Schiff who I recently discovered. If anyone is interested, his WTK book I & II along with the complete Mozart Piano Sonatas is here:
