I'll just finish by saying that I have Schiff's WTC 1 and 2, but I much prefer almost all the other Bach he has recorded. He is a Bach specialist, I know; and his recordings of the keyboard concerti are among the best. But I have never been keen on his WTC. Not sure what it is. I listened to the Amazon clips of the Stadfeld recording: I really liked what I heard, but he takes the B minor Book 1 at a furious pace!

Andreas, thanks for sharing this absolutely beautiful recording! It has almost brought me to tears :cry:
I think your WTC project is one of those which enhance the quality of PS.
I've read on another thread that you and Monica started a new project for four hands. I wish both of you much fun! :D

Thank you, Hye-Jin, for your encouraging comment and your interest. I´m so happy to have someone touched to tears! :D That´s probably the best compliment one can receive, isn´t it?!

Thank you. I´m also looking forward to it and I´m sure we will have fun. Saying this I hope, that the synchronization will not cause too much problems, the synchronization can always be a bit like a "stumbling stock" in such a project.

I agree!

BTW, I have listened to your Brahms-Intermezzo and have written a comment. It´s really very good.
