I don't really know them well except 1 and 2, of which I like 2 the best, of course. That one's real corker. Problem is I have a zillion other projects on the stove already.

You didn't forget 887. That's the one we discussed elsewhere. :wink:
You've only been back a day and already managed to confuse me :P But I remember now, it's 890 I forgot, and 887 that's full of sh*t. I'll get to work on them. Again. . . .

Eh, it's a lot of pressure. Also, I am never alone with a piano any more, which is frustrating. I might have to start practicing on a digital, which is not a good idea but better than not practicing at all.
That must be frustrating. I'm so happy with my own piano room. It was the first prerequisite when we started looking for a new house.

Yes, but no partitas on the site! Not even one, tsk tsk.

I know... there are some things I have not recorded yet. It's intolerable and inexcusable isn't it :P

Yesterday I re-recorded the G# minor pair (because of read errors in the Prelude, thx Terez) and the B-flat major pair, which I had forgotten. I hope these are ok, sort of, and think I'm now done, at least for a while, with the WTC. I decided to leave out the repeats of the B-lat major prelude, as with the repeats it seems totally out of proportion to the short fugue.

Bach - BWV 887 - Das Wolhtemperierte Clavier II - Prelude and Fugue No.18 in G sharp minor (8:08)
Bach - BWV 890 - Das Wolhtemperierte Clavier II - Prelude and Fugue No.21 in B flat major (8:04)

It is. While perfection might be our ideal goal, sometimes we have to settle for mieux! :wink:

Thanks for your feedback Terez, it's much appreciated. Especially with Bach, one needs somebody to pick those pesky little nits :D
