Three more freshly recorded for the WTC II cycle. Piano is a little off, but nothing (yet) to really hurt the ear.

Bach - Prelude and Fugue in E major, BVW 878, from WTC book II
Bach - Prelude and Fugue in F sharp minor, BVW 883, from WTC book II
Bach - Prelude and Fugue in B flat minor, BVW 891, from WTC book II

You are right, nothing really hurt the ear. Neither from the piano nor from your playing :D

Just the opposite. For the E major prelude and fugue I made the attempt to follow with score, have not found any mistakes. For the other P&F's I gave up, and only listened. I can't repeat it enough, your playing style with very good sense of rhythm and settled tone fits very well with Bach. And I will never stop wondering how fast you churn out new recordings! Great!

Hm, churning out... that sounds real ugly :wink: But I know what you mean.
I had not expected to be able to record all these in one day either. Actually I thought it might take me all day to nail that complicated B flat minor fugue, and I was prepared to do that if needed. But it seems I can move on with the WTC.

Oups, it was also not meant ugly, I only don't stop wondering about the amazingly quantity of your recordings, also about the quality, especially on Bach!

I agree with previous posters. Very good and may I also say, technically better than some other Bach recordings you have made. I have really nothing to niggle about so: -"Bravo!"
