I still believe that a very stable rhythm is a foundation of this piece. Rubato doesn't seem to fit in here well imho.

Otherwise I like it.

I really enjoyed this, Bach would’ve enjoyed the rubato.

I loved it as well as the subtle movement of the camera at the end. Well done!

I play this piece almost every day once or twice as a warm up. I have to say I really liked your interpretation. Nice dynamics and the rubato was subtle. I think you did a great job bringing it to life! Great camera angle also. Two Thumbs Up for me

There are SO MANY ways the C major prelude (WTC 1) has been played. I'm in the "anything goes" school, although I guess your slowdown at the very end is at the "way unorthodox" end of the scale!

Good recorded sound.

Here's my own take, which I'll call entirely "conceptual," at this point, since my original take via a Kawai RM3 Grand 2 controller has been midi-edited by me over the years:

What followed your prelude (for me) is Paul Barton doing more p&f. Your audio actually sounds cleaner to me (and the piano better tuned) than his sem-pro recording!

Sounds good to me. I did it with a typical Latin bass figure in the left hand keeping the right hand free for impro.

Good stuff!

John Lewis has done a lot of the p and f. Not sure if the C major is in there. I'm going to look for it.

Yup.... here it is....

It's fantastic, what he does with it. If there's an essence of CHILL, this is it.

Well done, ThomasPiano! When I returned to piano lessons a few years ago (as basically a beginner all over again), this was the piece I most wanted to learn to play. It is perfection, isn't it?

I love this. I remember playing the CD for a pianist friend years ago, warning first that "the idea of a jazz version of Bach would usually send me running the other way, but ...." My friend listened for a while and then said, "yes, but this guy really REALLY knows what he is doing."
