Top critical review
Not as good as Schiff's new one.
on 13 June 2017
A lot of people love his interpretation, but for me, it's all just way too fast. He plays through both books in 3 hours and 30 minutes. Compare this with the latest Barenboim's, which clocks in at 4 hours and 51 minutes. My favourite recording of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, is by Andras Schiff. He moulds a beautiful listening experience, unrushed but not laboured, at 4 hours and 3 minutes.
I would avoid this one, and go for either of the Schiff recordings.
