It must be "out there" . . . I am curious, but my curiosity does not burn  0:)
I think his Byrd is much better. I couldn't stomach the Bach.

Have started going through the Angela Hewitt recordings again and enjoyed her recording of the Partita number 1. I like that she generally plays the repeats of the tertiary movements differently, and I find she hits the sweet spot of using the dynamic capabilities of the piano to elucidate the music, without becoming too "romantic."

Yes she has lots of ideas about dynamics, I'm guessing they're her ideas rather than taken from someone else's edition. Another thing that impressed me was how distinctively light her touch is. I think that the conception is very poised and classical, an interesting contrast with the more empfindsamer stil approach of Wolfgang Rübsam.

(cheating on @naiveclassique w/ @eratofrance ???)


Anyone get the feeling that this release was never properly marketed... that it kindof snuck up on us? It should have been a big deal... but wasn't. And it's odd that Erato licensed this, and not Naive... even though Minkowski has not become a Warner artist.

I know it's a bit silly, but this clip always makes me smile in celebration of the sheer joy of music-making.

Thanks everyone for your support by reading. It's been fun -- and the fun will soon be continued on Andante.com.tr! (In English, nobody worry.)

But who are the performers? That's the decisive  point.

May I direct your eyes to the right of these columns? (Don't know your computer set-up; it may involve scrolling.)


Very interesting mix, esp. in the cantatas.

I see, that I already own about 90 % of the recordings. And most of the rest don't interest me.

Thanks for this alert! I see it just today the day of the release.  :)

Now I'm listening to the organ trio sonatas on Tidal (FLAC, master quality 24/96 kHz Stereo). So far, wonderful sound quality and interpretation.

Regarding the upcoming Bach 333 release.   I came across a news item that indicates that there will be two language versions: English and German. Has anybody else heard anything that contradicts this information? I'm surprised that there isn't a French or Spanish version. Really?

"Bach 333 is released worldwide on October 26th in two language versions – English and German".

from https://www.bach333.com/en

So - obviously Bach 333 sold in the US and UK would be in English and the ones sold in Germany in German. I wonder which language version that is marketed in France?  Hmmmmm
