Here is a rough recording of a Bach Prelude and Fugue. Any constructive comments are greatly appreciated.

There are some things I really like.. the evenness of the trills is really stunning. The tempo is stable and the notes are solid. I find myself wanting more variety in articulation, dynamics and the weighting between voices; I'm not going to say that it has to be romanticized, but even a simple 'terraced' approach would give it some interest.

The harpsichords of Bach's time had a much less uniform sound than the modern piano, which made it easier to distinguish and follow the different voices. On the piano it's necessary to go a little further so that the counterpoint can be easily followed.

While the tempo is stable and the notes solid, the overall interpretation here is rather one dimensional and not very interesting. After hearing your other recordings I know you can do so much more with this. I'm sending you a PM with a link to another performance - which may (or may not) help you rethink your approach to this P&F.
