Prelude in C Major

Hi Michael
Your interpretation is far better than most that I've listened to over the past weeks regarding piano tempo.
My personal opinion is the piece should be played at a slower tempo than even Bach suggests.
Piu lentamente i.e.
The sublime harmonics the voicings, harmonic extensions, chordal movement, key changes & single line melody makes the simplicity of it's elegance realize the elegance of it's simplicity. I think many of today's more mature touring pianists, CD artists etc. are too timid, mechanically structured or have lost understanding Bach's time, when performance expression saturated his audiences with the rarefied air of not only cerebral understanding but to a pathway of nirvana in their hearts. And imagine this; during only a single performance.
My opinion is that a piece so seductive to inundate celestial glory, while simultaneously plunging one into startling dissonance, even before self-reflection delivers you to an ethereal enlightenment; a glorious resolution, until alas, you are compelled to play it again.
I will listen to the rest of your interpretation of the WTC, & pass my thoughts to you. I've thoroughly enjoyed writing to you. Your art is a work in progress.
Bon Chance, Anthony
PS. The Prelude in C Major does, will, could & should stand on it's own. The raw form is a revealing insight into what moves you deeply. You are your own peer, judge & jury. No one else is of any consequence to your mind & heart. Great smile by the way.
