thank you very much for your kind comment and suggestions!
I just have one or two suggestions. Perhaps you should set a pattern regarding dynamics from the start of the Prelude, i.e. measure 1 is louder than measure 2, measure 3 is louder than measure 4 and so on wherever that pattern of a statement and a response occur. I hear measure 1 as a statement and measure 2 as a soft response that need to be approached as such. What do you think?
These are very nice ideas of interpretation. I will try them out. Thank you!
Your tone is extremely beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for your encouraging words.
I spotted the trademark read error in the fugue At the beginning of bar 40 in the fugue you play a natural in the RH instead of A f lat. Alas that is not the only one. I in bar 46, the b natural in LH should be B flat (although the accidentals here seem a bit confusing), and in the chord with the fermata, you play e natural instead of E flat. Sorry
There really is no need to excuse, just the opposite, my friend. Thank you for looking for my obligatory read-errors, one couldn´t say it more to the point than you have done here. But - I´m so very sorry
- the last one (in bar 46 on the fermata) is not right, I think. I have played an e-flat-major "Sextakkord" here as it´s written, not a diminished chord. But at the beginning of the bar it should be a dimished chord, which I have not played, but an a-major-sept-chord. (It´s a mistake more of the heavier sort, I think.
It seems to me (but I could be mistaken) that there is a difference in sound quality between the prelude and fugue. Were they recorded in the same way and during the same session ? The fugue, especially in the beginning, seems to sound a bit louder and sharper.
May be you are right, but if, it´s only a very small difference. Yes, both pieces were recorded in one session shortly one after the other. The only difference to my habit was I have recorded them with Zoom H4 (and Neumann mics), because my computer with the good sound-card is in repair in Neuss at this time. (Tomorrow I will take it back.) May be I have played the fugue a bit more forte than the prelude, this could well be.
Shall I put these up or do you want to redo the fugue ? Necessary it's not, of course. It is very fine as it stands.
No, thank you, Chris. I will let it like it is. I prefer to go to the next piece. (David was so kind to send me the score of the little prelude by Dutra.
