Format: Audio CD
Here is a recording by my former harpsichord teacher, and while I can't claim to be completely objective, I am an incorrigible snob and notoriously disloyal. Hopefully, that will encourage you to trust my positive review of this cd by my wonderfully wonderful teacher.
Truth be told, I've never warmed to the first movement of the Italian Concerto. Those crashing chords at the outset give the wrong impression and usually inspire an edificial interpretation, as if the keyboardist thinks he is a mason working on a pyramid. The performance at hand, however, is remarkable for its plasticity, introduced in the first episode (:45) by a melting line where a choppy scale is usually heard, perfectly crystallizing what is different about this performance. The difference between watching a slinky descend a flight of steps versus an accidentally dropped vacuum cleaner.
Out of two or three dozen performances I've heard, this is only the second one that I would recommend - the other one being Luc Beausejour's on Analekta thanks to some *finely* pruned articulation. But whereas the latter is blemished by an unexciting third movement, this one literally grows wings, rendering Italianate virtuosity in the finale like no other performance you will ever hear. Other favorite recordings of this third movement are Gould's classic 1961 CBS recording for its ballistic trajectory (not to be confused with either the 1954 CBC or the later digital version), and on harpsichord, Andreas Staier on DHM is a virtuosic third choice.
There are quite a few excellent recordings of the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, but they're generally cut from the same cloth, emphasizing the psychotic element.
