I'm very much enjoying this CD from Felix Friedrich
The instrument sounds wonderful -- noble, not too bright, not to dark and sombre. The sound of the recording is really clear and revealing. In terms of music making, he plays with enormous nobility and poise. There's often a great sense of accumulation. And he tells a story, not just within preludes, but also by the way one prelude follows another. It is, for example, completely unfortorgetably magical the way he has BWV 676, playful, airy, follow directly the enormous climax of BWV 671.
And yet, despite the aristocratic poise of Friedrich's music making, I defy anyone to find a more poignant rendition of BWV 682.
