I can't bear the harpsichord, I mean I can imagine it as continuo but either Kraus doesn't play it well or it's just not a very refined instrument.

But he uses the same harpsichord for both chaconne's.

This is worth a listen. Takeshika gets the most out of his Silbermann fortepiano by way attentive rubato/articulation. Seems this chap never studied with anyone of note. He's kind of a mystery.
It’s my mission to get one more person to listen to this. I find the partitas, unlike other keyboard works of Bach, don’t translate as well to instruments other than the harpsichord. However, employing flexibility and imagination, Takehisu creates an enjoyable version on the fortepiano. I wouldn’t recommend it as one’s only recording, or even as a second or third one. But for lovers of the partitas I think it’s worth acquiring.
