I did not have to come and listen to your Bach here because Chris put it up, but I wanted to because you consistently listen and help me with my playing.
Thank you, I appreciate that!
First off - I actually do understand why you said the Prelude sounds like an Invention. I clearly heard similarities between it and the nos. 1 and 4 Inventions.
Yes, the whole structure and tonal plan is the one of a two part invention, absolutely typical.
The other thing deals with sound: 1. I hear a strange popping sound at 0:13 and again at 2:45. Each time there is also a tiny little slowing down and then the 'pop'.
Strange, I think, it must be your computer, because I can´t hear these noises. Did you try it also with another player program?
2. Just a little thing about your piano - to me it sounds a bit out of tune, which I really only noticed when you played the last note in the Prelude - the octaves.
That´s a quite good point, I think, Monica. I have tuned my piano myself nearly one week ago, but I think, the E (big E in the bass) I have tuned a very little too high, but for me it was still in the limit of the "pythagoreic compromise" (Kompriss des Pythagoreischen Kommas). (I was just a bit too lazy to pull it down a bit again, if I´m honest
, but now, where you mention it, I will do that tomorrow straight away
.) I think, all the other tones are quite perfect in the scale of the well-tempered tuning with 440 Hz.
That's all - everything else sounded fine, as usual!
Many thanks to a great lady of the piano! Fortunately I have not to fight with Bachs pieces like a torero!
