The Well-Tempered Clavier is not only 48 individual pieces 96 if you count both books , but rather an extraordinarily complete whole, put together by one of the greatest minds and hearts that ever existed. The idea that Baroque music has to be metronomic is a false one. Of course the rhythmic pulse must be forever present, and you must never pull the music about just for the sake of it.
Any rubato must be applied to illuminate something in the structure, to bring our attention to a beautiful change of harmony, to point out something to the listener that otherwise would be passed over too abruptly. In that way, structure, poetry and sound are all related and come together as a whole.
The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1
But I prefer the risks, and I think Bach himself would have played it anything but safe! Comment pourrais-je en vendre un autre enregistrement? Le fils de Bach, C. Die Aufnahme hat so viele Auszeichnungen erhalten! Wie soll ich denn eine weitere Aufnahme vermarkten? Was macht den Unterschied dieser Aufnahme zur ersten aus? Warum war ich so wild entschlossen, den Zyklus noch einmal aufzunehmen?
Ich machte zu jedem Praeludium und zu jeder Fuge einige Notizen. Woher kam also diese neugefundene Freiheit? Bachs Sohn, C. Die Ansicht, dass Barockmusik metronomisch sein muss, ist falsch.

So gesehen sind die Struktur, die Poetik und der Klang alle miteinander verbunden und treten als Ganzes auf.

Playing of this ease and assurance rarely has such a profound understanding of the material. This is no mechanical journey through the cycle of keys. And on she proceeds, track after track, illuminating the music with great sensitivity and interpretative freedom. The touch of her fingers is lighter now; her pulse is more elastic.
The piano, too, has changed.
It has a significance way beyond the beauty and depth of her playing. If you own the original, you need to check out this set and hear that she has found more than subtle differences in the work to bring out. My cycle of Bach recordings was well under way, already with the Inventions, Sinfonias, French Suites and Partitas available. Although I had of course worked on many of the 48 preludes and fugues as a student, a lot of them were still fairly new to me.

Bach's essential works. It is a very original edition for more than one reason. Firstly, it is the very first musical edition in which the analysis is fully presented with colours. Secondly, its bases are set following the contrapuntal rules that were in application during the eighteenth cen- tury, so it resettles Bach's work in a true and faithful historical background. Although musical analysis is not an exact science, it is still possible to show that one analysis technique is more rational and more historically appropriate than another and that it fits logically in with the type of composition we want to look at.
Obviously there are certain points of detail which are always open to discussion. I make no claims to a note-by-note analysis; this is a polythematic, structural analysis which shows and dismantles the architecture of J. Bach's fugues. His works are extremely complex and, especially in analytical terms, this complexity leads to an imbro- glio in the use of a number of terms such as subject, countersubject, motif, episode, divertimento, etc.
