Comments:Stefano Cattani said:

I don't like this Ruebsam playing. In another review (Art of Fugue), the comment reports that "The whole thing is played very romantically: great liberty is taken in regard to tempi. [...] The frequent and out of place ritardandos and rallentandos verge on comical.". I agree also for this recording.
