Quote from: milk on February 19, 2022, 06:14:04 AMDoes Rubsam give a sense of dance in, for example, his French Suites? I'm just listening to Tilney's 6th partita now. The courante is otherworldly; he plays it in a higher register than it's normally played. Yes, it's very slow, it's the opposite of dance; it's dark. He follow it up with an air that duels between the lute stop and non-lute stop. Again, he's not interested in the air as the dance its name suggests. The sarabande is even more of a crush; it's played almost like a fantasia or something. I respect what Tilney does and I think it's austere. I admit I probably won't return to it soon. Weiss is reliably good.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 19, 2022, 06:23:47 AMNo I don't think Rubsam does play up the dance, and I didn't mean what I said to be a dig against the later Tilney, I just want to get clear about what's actually happening. Rubsam plays up the counterpoint. I don't think I've heard Weiss. With a performance like Tilney's partitas, you have to approach it with "soft ears" -- ears which aren't hardened by expectations.
Quote from: milk on February 19, 2022, 10:37:10 PM Rubsam hasn't done the partitas on lautenwerk? It's the only one he's left to just the older piano recording? Have I got that right? I think I'll appreciate Rubsam more one day. I'm curious.
