    This unassuming little Bach fugue (of doubtful authenticity, according to my book) is not a piece that hugely inspires me, and I would not even post it in AR if it did not happen to be my 1000th recording on the site :D

    Bach - BWV 952 - Fugue in C major ( 1:33 )

    Wow - 1000 recordings! That's a heck of a lot of music!! Congratulations on that.

    Is there a place on the stats that shows our exact number of recordings? Robert told me my number awhile ago, but I don't know where he got it from.

    Thanks. Of course the number is a bit unfair as I am specialized in large cycles of very short pieces.

    No. The way to find out is to log on to the server, go to the mp3 directory, and give the command

    Code:
       ls *alianello*.mp3 | wc -l
    The result is 265. Not bad 8)

    I could probably amend the stats to show the number of recordings per person, and, more interestingly, the total playing time of these. Will think about it.

    What a beautiful and nice recording. Have my congratulations to your recording-jubilee! It´s a great achievement and you can be proud of it!
    And what a good and adequate choice to choose a Bach-piece for your jubilee-recording no. 1000!

    Thanks ! I thought of doing the 6-part Ricercar from the Musical Offering, that would be something special. But I don't feel it's ready yet.

    1,000:th recording is crazy =). An incredible achievement but I am not surprised that you finally reached that limit. We have as a total 4,382 recordings right now so about 25% are actually yours alone.

    This is a nice little piece which you have probably now given the most honourable gratitude ever ;).
