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.
