    Ah, someone else using the R-1 ! I thought I was the only one here and everybody else has the slick new R-9. Ah well, the R-1 may be clunky and not very sophisticated but it does the job.

    Very well played Casper89 ! Nice tempo, rhythm and articulation. Every note in its proper place. The ornaments are not quite in the proper Baroque tradition (i.e. according to Bach's famous ornamentation table) but more pianists do them like that, so no problem. With regards to articulation, you are sometimes a bit too eager to jump off the last note to create the 'luftpause'. If you can hold that last note just a fraction longer, and release it a bit less abrupt, it would be just perfect. Of course this is personal observation, there is nothing really wrong with the way you do it.

    Yes it is better. Not that the previous was in any way less than good, but this one sounds more natural now that you don't make these little surprised jumps off the keys. Nothing left to niggle about (except may the ornaments).

    So what are your further recording plans on short term ? You going to to all the Inventions and compete with Robert ?

    I'm planning to record the D major Invention, and I'm going to record some other inventions too, perhaps even all of them, but I've to learn them first :) ...another thing I'm planning to record is the December of Tchaikovskys "The Seasons".
