Quote from: JBS on May 05, 2023, 08:04:50 AMI do prefere AoF with an instrumenarium that distinguishes voices, but IIRC I only have 2 on organ--Gould and (I think) Isoir. And I don't particularly like the Gould.
Quote from: premont on May 05, 2023, 10:20:40 AMSee my answer to Dry Brett Kavanaugh above.My preference for the AoF is the organ and next to this harpsichord or clavichord. Ensemble versions may be pedagogically instructive and may also be nice to listen to but makes a chamber music work of it which it isn't.Neither is Gould my cup of tea. There are more than fifty other organ versions - almost all of them preferable to Gould's. I'm rather happy with Isoir's confident and elegant recording. But if you want I shall recommend you alternative versions.

Quote from: premont on May 05, 2023, 10:02:59 AMI have no particular objection as to the sound of the organ, but my recommendation is first and foremost about the musician. The five ½ others areBernard LagacéLouis ThiryRobert CostinDaniele Boccaccio Frédéric Desenclos and an individual recording of book II by Christoph BossertAnd Robert Levin and Daniel Chorzempa play a few of the prel. & fugues on the organ in their complete WTC recordings.My own preference of these is Louis Thiry with a human and well sounding version on a suitably small organ, but Frédéric Desenclos may be the most "organistic" of them. His interpretation is a bit "strict" and reminds me sometimes of Helmut Walcha. Lagacé is reliable but lacks inner tension when needed. The same may be said about Bossert. Costin and Boccaccio haven't done much for me.

Quote from: Dry Brett Kavanaugh on May 09, 2023, 01:46:26 PMI just found that Sachi Ozawa released the Books 1 and 2, also from Waon label.They're on Spotify etc.
Quote from: premont on May 09, 2023, 02:40:58 PMI'm completely inexperienced as to streaming. I see, that Amazon.de offer both books as mp3 download for the modest cost of 10 euro's each, but usually I try to avoid mp3.
