That's a strange way of playing it. Dry and irregular. No like.

The beginning is jumbled, it's like he's not sure which way to play it, how much time to wait. Then those dotted quavers-semiquaver bits sound more like double dotted sauvers-demisemiquavers, really abrupt I find.
I'm biased though, not a fan of the harpsichord much (at least, on its own).

I thought it a bit irregular but certainly not dry.

I love the Brandenburgs. For anyone who's new to Bach, they're a great place to start, because they're pretty accessible.

If you want to try a stylistically similar work by another composer, try Handel's Opus 6 Concerti Grossi. For me, not quite at the Brandenburg level, but excellent anyway.

I've been really into the French suites lately. I dig them a lot more than the English suites. Though not as technical, they come off as far more musical. The partitas have both. But the French suites are what I've been into

Fucking Brandenburg Concertos. How did the same guy who wrote the Mass in B Minor write these?

I love this post, especially when viewed in context of the one you put up a month ago.

I have yet to fully absorb the Goldberg Variations, so I think, for the next month, I'm going to list to one per day, as many times as it takes me to understand it, to feel it, starting today with the aria, which I already love and listen to a lot.

Which version are you listening to? If it's the Gould, some will disagree with me, but that may not be the best place to start. I love Gould and in many ways his 1981 version is my favorite, but some of the variations he distorts so crazily that it might be better to start with someone like Hewitt or Perahia.

Gould's 20th variation:

Hewitt's 20th variation:
http://grooveshark.com/s/Variation+20/4qrBBM?src=5

So those are two wildly different things.

Yeah, those are also excellent, great recommendation for lovers of the Brandenburg Concerti who want to try something new in the same vein.
