Are you thinking of the 24+24 preludes and fugues of the two book of WTC?
Yes, they are often collectively referred to as "the 48 preludes and fugues" or even just "the 48".

Also as the Old Testament of Pianism.

Hmm, Chris, is it just me or do people seem to have missed your sarcasm here? Yesterday, I was going to mention something about how Captain Obvious would have enjoyed this conversation, but then thought better of it. Oops, there I go putting my foot in it again :mrgreen:

Hi Andreas,

I had a listen to yours and Chris's performance, nice work! I think this is the classical piece that everybody has heard of, perhaps aside from the nutcracker :lol: . I think my sister use to have this on her phone as a ringtone (the strings version no doubt :)).

I agree with your statement, that for three hours for practice and recording the work done was worth a post!

Now to listen to your Vyserhad.. 8)

I´m sure, this must sound like original strings on your sisters mobile phone! :lol: :wink: Concerning the level of well-knownness the Nutcracker is equal to the g-minor-symphony, but I think, the g-minor is much more profound!

I´m glad. It´s not perfect (mainly in synchronization), but worth a listen, I think.

I also will listen to your new recordings as soon as possible. See you!

Hi Chris and Andreas,

Another fine collaboration! I just watched the video. You played with clean articulation of touch, phrased very well, used judicious pedal, and were in coordination throughout. The performance was quite expressive too, and although controlled, had a certain freedom as well. Congratulations on this achievement!

David

Beautiful work, especially if we account for the small number of rehearsals ! The arrangement sounds very nice, too. Congratulations,

Thanks David and Francois for your kind comments. Just imagine what might have emerged with proper rehearsal and more generous recording time :wink:
