A funeral prelude? Far too slow. What happened to the huge, joyous, striding feel of it? The largo is so deathly tedious, dragging itself mournfully from bar to bar like some half-dead thing, it almost stops moving altogether. The fugue turns out to be yet another largo but with a different structure. Screamingly dull throughout.

Painfully unmusical tempi

By: cyclist on Aug, 03 2011

This is PAINFUL! I cannot imagine anyone choosing such a morbid tempo! The music has no life.

He. Takes. Each. Note. Very. Carefully. And. Makes. It. All. So. Dull.

EGAD! I cannot take 23 minutes of this...mute headset off... wake me when this is over. 19 min would still be too long!

ouch... was happy it finally ended, then just realized that the fugue was about to start. and the fugue is even slower than the prelude 8-0

By: HarmonicsV on May, 23 2017

Wow. What on earth made him do that to the fugue...?
