Not the best Canzona interpretation I heard, and by far. Regisitration in plain (and too loud IMHO), and the added trills only when it fits under the finger (ignoring the fugato) is quite annoying (in addition, there should be no such addition in this piece to my own taste).

What would Bach have made of this? It seems far too slow. Give me Virgil Fox's rollicking version any time.

By: ljwalker on Sep, 21 2011

Virgil Fox's version is too fast, but this sounds like it is being played for a funeral.

Is she still learning it? Even the decorations are laboured, and there's about as much gigue here as in a pot of jam.

By: TrichterRegal on May, 27 2015

Gigue - is a lively baroque dance. Sounds more like a dreary funeral dirge!

By: stlorganist on Apr, 13 2016

REALLY! .... ZZZZZZ Virgil Fox plays this at the perfect tempo! rollicking and spirited this is not meant to be a dirge!

By: gemshorn on Sep, 14 2016

You can HEAR the pain in her fingers and feet while playing this. Why on earth has it been recorded?
