Konzert in B-flat BWV 1051 - Bach - Philharmonia Orchestra, Otto Klemperer
A humanized, human sized performance. Each individual player retains their personal contour, their place in the group. The space between them is closely measured, even the big moments coming across as an effort of specifics rather than a gooey conglomeration.
Momentum giddily sacrificed to the moment, the vast chasms between now and now being bridged by design alone. The long line is left to fend for itself. We are now only here in this immediacy.
Keyboard Sonata in D Hob. XVII:D1 - Haydn - Christine Schornsheim
After CPE: Oh so rational. Oh so even tempered.
Symphony in A K114(114) - Mozart - Academy of Ancient Music, Jaap Schröder, Christopher Hogwood
I love interwoven snaky counterpoint of the Andante, and the gently tiny extra movement tacked to the end.

Fox Spit 150131 folded rubbed - Keith Eisenbrey
This weeks improvisation was on the lovely acoustic steel string guitar that was the first off my brother Paul's luthiery. The rubbed version is pretty nice.
