I'm sure you will have more comments.  I've seen a number of Bach fans here.  Probably will just take a bit more time.  I listened to 1 and 4 so far, very nice!  Quite a different interpretation from mine, so it was interesting to hear in that respect, but also, I just really appreciated the quality of your playing.  Lovely job.

By the way, the recordings are AMAZING . Even better than Glenn Gould ( seriously).

I only heard the 1st varation but it is really lovely! Sorry I can't give some constructive critisism but well, I would have no idea on how to improve it even more Smiley.

Greets, Buebo.

Thanks for the comments.

I've been inspired very much by Glenn Gould (hence the "Gouldberg" Variations). I learned these pieces by myself over a period of about 2-3 months. Unfortunately I haven't had formal lessons in a while (4 years) so I really appreciate all comments and suggestions. The touchstone for my interpretation is Gould's 1981 recording, though I can sympathize with those who dislike it. I also consult Perahia and Tureck's equally excellent recordings.

She is great indeed.  Grin but for some reason I prefer Gould an Perrahia, in comparisson with her version o Goldberg variations.

Anyway steveie, great job, specialy without a teacher. You shoul look for one, I´m shure you will get even better! (it happend to me)

Stunning!
Ok, you don't need the praises, but the critizizm right? Bach purists would probably find that some of your ornamentations are not in the most appropriate places.

Post the rest soon, I miss the variation II  Grin
Bravo!
