This has moments. He really rushes through some some of the preludes and some of the fugues even. But he has moments where he seems to stop and smell the roses. What an interesting life...escaped the Nazis...a Catholic Jew...a student of a student of Chopin...a student of a student of Beethoven...a child prodigy...played before Faure in 1905 and lived to be 100!


Probably the closest interpretation to the first time I saw Babayan live.

edit: maybe Bach on piano isn't the right thread as Busoni's transcription is a far cry from what Bach composed, but I don't think I've heard Leonhardt's transcription on piano.
