(although I don't think that one should feel a need for doing cycles, instead playing what makes fun the most)!
There is some truth in that. On the other hand, there must be some pianists who are prepared to do more than cherry-pick the nicest bits, or we'll end up with many recordings of popular items and none of the less popular items. I do
believe that complete sets give an added value to PS as well as to the pianist and that is why I always go on about it.
I agree that it is good to have also pieces of minor popularity on the site, so this for sure gives added value to PS. Added value to the pianist? Do you mean because of the quantity of pieces? I think more about that if one plays a piece more or less only because it belongs to a cycle, because one feels kind of duty to do so, but not because one feels the inner need to express something special through the piece, it will sound accordingly, and the value of this is accordingly too.
But you definitely have the point that it is good to have a wide spread of pieces, not only the popular ones here on PS. But maybe there is already spread enough because pianist's tastes are differently?
Don't get me wrong - it is a very very great achievement from you to plan complete cycles of Chopin Mazurkas, Bach WTC1&2, KdF, Orgelbüchlein and so on and so on. Unbelievable large output!
Sorry for coming off topic, by the way.
