The prelude sounds beautiful to me! Very sensitive played - great!

The fugue sound very good to me too. There is one place were you lost a bit the groove, but also the fugue you play wiht good dynamics. Ver well played!

Good to see you are back with some re-recordings ! This one is certainly much more convincing (and convinced) than the prevous version if I remember well. Very good Bach playing here, I have no real quibbles about it. One or two stumbles and some tiny slips in the fugue, but nothing serious. Two things I noticed in the fugue (could be edition differences, I have Henle Urtext)

Bar 46: last LH note should be f-sharp-sharp, not f-sharp
Bar 63: first LH note should not be struck but tied over from previous bar

Nice dynamics in the Prelude. It seemed to me that the volume setting in the fugue was significantly lower, or perhaps it's my imagination.

What irritated me were the constant thumping mechanical noises, more so in the Prelude than in the Fugue. Damper system, pedal, keybed ? I am not sure. You might be too close on the action with your mikes.

But otherwise, very well done. Hope the others are as good (will listen now).
