Great sound & performance

Do we really need yet another recording of the Well-Tempered Clavier Book 1? I suppose so. This recording is enjoyable although nothing about it sets it apart from the zillion recordings already available. The cover art is nice.

David Perrine said:

Best recording I've heard of this work. Fellner has great technique and really brings out the character of each piece. Never heavy-handed, he can articulate a whole spectrum between pp and p. Recording quality is excellent.
