Ah, wonderful!!! This is one of absolute favourites among Bach (as for you) and you play it with passion and dedication. It leaves little to be wished for but I would like you to hold on to the highest keys of the arpeggiated chords a bit longer before moving to next key. Like a tenor would sing it. They are the opium in this wonderful toccata! But who needs opium when there is Bach?

Also, connecting to the topic about "Bach and pedal". Perfect example when one can really make use of the sustain pedal in Bach.

I'll keep this looping...;).

Mine, too ! I have many favourites, but if one had to be chosen, it had to be Bach.

Perfect again... It gets a bit boring saying that. At least about the Chopin I could find something to niggle :wink: Not so here. Oh yes there is something : why is this encoded in 80Kbs instead of 128Kbs ? That is below the standard, and it does not seem to sound as warm as the other recordings.

A touch on the slow side for a movement called "Toccata", but not too much so. Wonderful counterpoint in the middle section and great how you differentiate the voices even within one hand. I like the very slight ritenuti, they add just that bit of freedom and flexibility without crossing into rubato-land.
