    That may be so, but you do get all the notes right and that is no mean feat.

    These are very commendable recordings, well done. I'll need to a bit of nitpicking later, especially in the fugue there are a number of read errors (slips?) and missing notes, and some very minor things elsewhere. But artistically and sonically, these are very good.

    Some more feedback on the fugue. Generally good but there are a couple of spots where your tempo is
    a bit unstable (slight speed-ups, probably not intended ?)
    In addition I heard these things

    bar 7: rh plays f instead of g
    bar 12: missing note in lh
    bar 15: c-eflat should be eflat-g
    bar 17: missing note in lh, e should be eflat
    bar 20: first lh note is eflat not e
    bar 28: before the rest, rh plays b instead of c

    I do recommend to listen to some performances before submitting, to weed out these read mistakes (insofar as these are, some can be silly slips). Especially in fugues, misreadings are a real danger.

    Lastly, you could be a little more playful here. It's just a bit dogged. Still good though.

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your feedback on the fugue. I agree that it would be a good idea to fix the read errors in the fugue before submitting the recording. In the meantime, what suggestions do you have for the Gigue and the Invention? Can those two be put on the site while I work on the Prelude and Fugue some more?

    Thanks,
    Samuel Chetty

    The Invention is generally good even if I would not play the trills that slow. There's a couple of inaudible notes, and the trill in bar 17 should use F-sharp instead of F-natural. But this is fine for the site. So are the Gavotte and Gigue, very good performances.

    The Invention, Gavotte and Gigue are up on the site. I accidentally deleted the P&F... sorry ! You can attach it again if you'd like more feedback on it.
