For those not aware, the Mendelssohn Op35 set are of extraordinary technical difficulty. Not aided by the fact the Welsh pianist Jones performs his complete piano works [in my opinion] at least 50% too fast [to the point some items lose their musical integrity], the preludes and fugues are rarely performed. I struggle with number 3, but my presentation has some charm.


Here are some better presentations from the Well Tempered Clavichord Book 2

Fugue 6


Prelude Fugue 7

The brilliant fugue 20

Fugue 22
Given enough time, I'll play anything. Given all time, I'll play everything.

Anyone watch the So You Think You Can Dance show? I think Nigel Lithgow should consider a So You Think You Can Play. BachMach, you would be in your element. Keep calm and carry on.
