Great work ! I personally prefer the prelude a bit more flowing (it somehow reminds me of Bach's elegant and flowery handwriting with all the curls), but your approach works too.
Thanks for the praise, Chris.
Yes, I also could imagine a faster version of the prelude could work and your comparison with Bach´s handwriting appeals to me. As you say my approach works, too, and somehow I felt it like this (for this time).
You seem to hurry in bar 85
Yes, right, I think, it´s the "jump" into the subject-entry, which beginns there in bar 85, and made me become a little bit faster for that moment. I don´t know, if I should count it to "interpretation" or "uneveness", if I´m honest.
the thirty-second notes in bars 92/93 are just a touch uneven, as is the final trill (nice idea, BTW).
But if, only a little touch, I think. I feel that thirtysecond-notes as a kind of final-climax, which has something "wild" and "improvisatory", may be that´s the reason, why a do a bit of (nearly audible) agogic here.
The last six bars don't seem to have quite the same precise articulation as before, they sound more legato. Maybe that was intentional.
I can´t say, that it was intentional, my non legato isn´t always planed (except in the subject, of course, and in some counterpoints), I just do it spontaneously, if I feel, it needs some change in the moment. In every case I wanted to bring out the motif-dialogue in the two upper-voices, have you noticed that?
I could not find any wrong notes, so no reason to re-record. You have earned your schnapps allright
(Btw, "Federweißer" is not a "Schnapps", but something like a partially fermented new wine (see my explanation to Monica above).
Now I should get on with my WTC recordings, or you'll get there long before me. Some longer and more difficult pieces have been distracting me recently.
Of course, I´m curious on your next WTC-piece, which one will you record in the next step? I also hope to be able to augment my tempo of recording a bit, I think it could take one or two years I will finish the cycle. (On the other hand I have sworn to myself to take all the time is necessary for to make good recordings I´m at least halfway satisfied with.)
