Another admirer from Portland!
So sorry I missed this when you first posted it, dear Owl. Your playing is nothing short of miraculous!
I love your use of staccato on the theme, not only because it lends a sense of urgency, but also allows you to bring out the theme in the places where it is hidden. To me, that's the most important thing in fugues.
Just perfectly played in every respect!

There seems to be something marvellous in each one... something that makes it feel special :flowers:
This made me smile out loud. When I was at Conservatory in my early 20s, we were all learning and sharing all the great masterpieces. I remember having that very discussion in my living room as we listened to the Brandenburg Concertos. We all felt exactly
the same way about the strange fact that, whichever concerto we were listening to at the time, THAT was our favorite!
Thank you for working this one up for us. It's been in my head all day. It's my favorite!
