Format: Audio CD
I love Dantone's WTC 2 which is probably the best harpsichord WTC 2 I've heard so far. But in WTC 1, he is too indulgent. Which is perfectly fine in the preludes, but it seems to me that when you pause too often and use too much rubato in the fugues, it totally breaks up the counterpoint. And this is what happens with Dantone fugue after fugue.

I like Dantone so I'll keep this CD regardless but it is not one I return to often.

Format: Audio CD
Ottavio Dantone's interpretation of book 1 is no match for his excellent book 2.For me,there are too many hesitations which detract from the flow of the music.Dantone uses hesitations more carefully and to a lesser extent on his recording of book 2.
When it comes to choosing a good account on harpsichord of Bach's Well Tempered Clavier book 1,try instead Bob van Asperen or Luc Beausejour.

N.B.New notes added 19th August 2010 -
After quite a while i have returned to give this recording another listen.I feel i may have been a shade harsh in my initial review because i enjoyed it more this time although i still prefer Dantone's book 2 better overall.

4 stars is more appropriate!!
