A few days ago I released a recording of Bach's Prelude No 9 in E Major. I also decided to record this alternate interpretation of the prelude. These are two very different ways of playing the same notes of a score and indicate how versatile Bach's music usually is. His music is extremely open to the interpretation of the musician and leaves so much room for play. It is impossible to know for certain how Bach would have preferred his music to be played (despite experts claiming to know), and is even possible that he varied his own interpretation of his works. This leaves his music a mystery to be enjoyed uniquely by each performer.
Be sure to listen to this recording along with the alternate recording of the same piece.
