    I am not convinced this is an improvement on the original version. Yes it has more contrast and things to catch the ear now, but it seems to be trying a bit too hard now, possessed with a sort of Gould-like determination to be different. All the same, very well done save for one or two weak moments in the RH. The 'female pirouettes' seem a bit more heavy-handed than before.

    I do not pretend that I am not a Gould fan, nor that this interpretation has nothing to do with him, but it is actually an advice from my piano teacher to explore a slow version (really slow) of this invention. I mean, all the basic interpretations have been done already. And it feels right to me, at least yet but you can expect me to re-record many of the inventions...perhaps even several times. I will not let them go until I have a complete set I am really happy about.

    I love to play the same Bach piece a dozen times in a row, each time playing it very differently than the previous.
