Bach, J. S. - BWV 1001 Fugue - D09

Post by owl » Mon Aug 25, 2008 9:19 am

This is the Fugue... the second movement of the 1001 sonata
It's interesting that when I play these pieces I think, 'Oh, I like this one best'... then I play the next movement and I think the same thing about that piece of music
There seems to be something marvellous in each one... something that makes it feel special :flowers:

So, here I'm playing the Fugue... and it's my favourite... at the moment! :roll:
I hope it's yours too :D

Joy in the music

What a rare occasion to be first to reply on one of your recordings!!! :casque:

I'm writing while listening, just realizing that this is my favourite fugue too :D I fell in love with it when I heard Julian Bream play it. Yours, dear owl, is not less than fantastic, even when it comes only through my notebook speakers at the moment. I will listen soon through more adequate equipment!

Added to the collection :bye:

Thanks so much for sharing with us, I love your recordings

:merci: :merci: :bravo:

Hello Owl,

I just made a noise rather like an owl when I spotted that you had posted this. Thank you so much!

What a lovely clean and clear recording—you make that upper register sing so beautifully. I know I will be playing this recording a lot!

Best wishes, V :D :merci: :bravo:

Owl, you are a great guitar player. Your recordings of many masterpieces of our repertoire are world class, performed in a uniquely clear, clean style. This difficult fugue is no exception and you deserve (as I have said before) a much larger audience than our simple forum. Thank you, friend, for sharing another beautiful performance with us.

Wow! A legendary performance for the ages! :D

I really liked the exciting tempo, the driving energy and infectious verve. There are some really nice details and touches that stand out - how the voices are so clearly delineated in the beginning measures, and the passage in mm.'s 35-37 that is usually heard by other players together as chords you play as arpeggiated triplets-really nice touch, I once heard Vladimir Mikulka play it that way a long time ago but haven't heard anybody since do that, it's very effective. I thought the the last three measures beginning with that famous descending chromatic line was really spellbinding, you really built up the necessary tension and drama from all that happened before stepped on the power reserve and let it all out in that climactic moment, great job!

Thanks for sharing once again a superb performance!

:bravo: :merci:

Regards,

Aryeh

Owl,

I think you already know how much I love to hear you perform. My only complaint is, I don't get to hear enough!

You know, if you keep this up I'm going to have to change my whole concept for an Owl CD. How does "Owl Plays Bach" grab you?

Thank you for sharing this, and please do continue...

That's the most theatrical version, the more staccato based also, which I know.
Simply fantastic!
I send-you a lot of :bravo:s and :merci:s.

Once again you have almost overwhelmed me with your responses :oops:
I must confess that I did wonder a little how this would be received... Louis's work of course... and as always Gary has done a superb job with the recording :flowers:
I'm so very happy that you all enjoy this interpretation... I do love to play this music :D

Thank you so much for showing your appreciation

Siciliana is next... I think that's my favourite :roll:
LOL Just kidding!

Joy in the music
