Interesting comment here from Rubsam on his WTC

Listening to his harpsichord AoF today, I was impressed by how the fugues give the impression of two or three lutes playing. I think it may well be the most interesting harpsichord AoF since Leonhardt (DHM). The tone of the harpsichord he uses is very warm, I've not checked to see whether it's the same as the one he used for WTC.  The WTC one has this interesting feature

Agreed - I love it. In the WTC, the rubato occasionally gets in the way (a la Pamela Ruiter Feenstra), but it's excellent in the AoF.
But I think I might get used to the rubato in WTC after a few listens -- who knows?

I've been loving this for a long time. There's nothing quite like it save Levinson's WTC (in terms of the choice of instrument).

maybe Robert Levin who uses a fortepiano in some pieces (I think only in WTC II)
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.
(Bob Dylan)

What?
Ah. Levin, yes. Not that the playing is related. But Bach on Fortepiano is rare.
