New Bach Recordings – Two Preludes and Fugues

A new instalment of two Preludes and Fugues from Bach’s WTC I, performed by Martin Sturfält, has been published; the joyous and energetic C-sharp major set (which must surely be one of the most difficult to read on account of the extreme choice of key – seven sharps – taking you through keys such as B-sharp and E-sharp major!) and the simply remarkable work in B minor.

how is it possible to like both more?

frankly I wouldn't listen to either of these recordings. For me there is only one Schumann concerto and that is Fiorentino's version.
