*nods* I know what you mean - I'd have settled for an original fortepiano recording, but it doesn't look like there are any of those on YouTube (the fortepiano postdates Bach somewhat - the original fugues would have been played on clavichord or harpsichord, or organ).I find it very hard to relate to the sound of the harpsichord. I like it in ensembles (concertos) but I struggle with solo harpsichord.
Not easy, is it? Works for me if I kind of follow it one beat to the bar. But I've a feeling that's the kind of piece you use the music to learn from before you perform it at speed - not something I'd want to sight-read, anyway! (and anyway, playing anything off two staves at once is just unnatural, in my view ).Very nice! Properly woke me up this morning.
That Lutoslawski is amazing, I only wish I could follow the score without getting lost.
