Thank you for listening and commenting, Alfonso.
I beg to differ with the majority view about the tempo being slow. A radical choice it is, but adequately pursued.
Yes, my choice is "radical" compared with most recordings of famous pianists, but not more radical than the choice of Glenn Gould.
As Chris's already pointed out, an object lesson of polyphonic playing for all of us. Very persuasive the ornaments at antiphonal bars 13-14.
Especially in the slow tempo, I found these bars too boring without some additional ornaments. I´m glad, you like them.
Interpretative-wise I like best the prelude, but this pair is well rendered in all the respects. Also, your novel recording settings work beautifully and your piano sounds even more gorgeous than ever.
Coming from you, this means much too me. And I´m so happy, that someone appreciates all my effort, I put in testing out new recording settings. I would like to thank once more Pantelis, from who I have all these nice inspirations.
I'm not sure that this kind of close sound image would suit music other than Bach's, but I understand this is highly personal.
Yes, that´s a good point, Alfonso, and I will think about it. Thanks for the inspiration.
