    Her dad Anatol is of course a fine pianist, but he hasn't recorded any Bach AFAIK. What's Anatol doing these days?
    Has Edward Parmentier's WTC1 been discussed? I have that one in my collection (is it rare nowadays?) and I'm about to check it out once more.

    I'd be quite interested to hear it, because the interpretation on clavcichord is quite prescient, with all it's flexibility and expressiveness . . . this was made at the time when others were playing Bach mechanically.

    The clavichord he used sounds bizarre to me. Does anyone know anything about it?

    It might also be the recording techniques used . . .

    . . . or even the mixing, EQ, or mastering.

    I just read a rave review of this on the Fanfare website:

    wtc_sivelov (2).jpg

    Has anyone heard this?

    It's on Spotify. The various parts are grouped together by key, so Book I and Book II are mixed up. It was released in 2015.

    If allowed after only a short listening, it sounds quite restless. Not immediately inviting to start listening to the entire thing.

    This came out last month and I expected more interest/discussion, haven't seen even a review of it.

    Thoughts?
