beautiful

I own a few really outstanding recordings of this: among them richter, wanda landowska, friedrich gulda, gould. This is now my favorite. It may actually be more expressive and nuanced than all of the above (with the exception of gulda), while being less mannered. You can hear everything; the clavichord makes it all transparent. This is an incandescent recording.
