Quote from: Mandryka on October 22, 2022, 11:23:07 AMNew release, I'd say the performances lean on the energetic and inoffensive run through side. A bit like hearing it through a barrel organ. Not feeling positive so far, I have to say. Maybe I'll come round to it. I'm listening to Bk 2 by the way, not the one in the image.

Quote from: Mandryka on October 23, 2022, 12:48:22 AMIt might help to think of this organ as a box of flutes. It sounds like a box of flutes. (Quite enjoying it in small doses this morning, with a different sound system and a different head-space. It's a smiley, cheerful WTC 2, light hearted. But no - it's wearing after a short time. )
Quote from: (: premont :) on October 23, 2022, 12:12:50 PMIt's strange, that this is the first recording of the WTC on a chamber organ. This instrument has the great advantage of having a modest and clear sound well suited for the music. Otsuka's interpretation is rather straight-forward with almost inflexible pace (except for traditional ritardandi at the end of sections). What makes me associate to Helmut Walcha is also the insistent character of the playing, the almost metric execution of embellishments and ornamentation and the clear part playing. His articulation though is much more informed than Walchas home-made articulation. I have wondered about the tuning of the chamber organ. So far all modes sound equally out of tune I suppose the tuning is equal. However I think the new recording is an interesting contribution to the WTC field.
