Yes, yes I know....I obsess over them for years and still can't play them! Not to start another semantics debate, but I think what I meant by 'awkward' was that every now and then one of the off-beat notes will be just a little louder than a downbeat, but your way of putting it - not so supple - works fine to describe what seemed off about it to me. Maybe it just needs some phrase-shaping, not just an accent on those downbeats, but a bit of a crescendo toward them. I dunno; I have never worked on this one, but I have played through it often enough to know it's not as easy as it looks.
I find many of the preludes generally harder to cope with than the fugues. Probably sez more about me than about the music
Anyway, you have to give me a bit more credit than just 'some improvement'. This re-recording (while maybe not perfect) is lightyears apart from the earlier attempt, which was really more awful than even you remember (I always listen to the old one before putting up the new one, and jeez, that was a sloppy job, especially the prelude).
hehe, I found where you said that
. In your defense, Alfie said it first so I'm sure it was just peer pressure.
Yeah, I tend to chime in with people
But actually, being a bit more experienced, now
I am finding it hard.
