Prelude n 5 in Re Major from the first book of the Well-Tempered Clavier composed by J. S. Bach.
I do not like the fast versions that are usually heard. It seems that since Glenn Gould’s fabulous and popular performance, all the pianists are striving to prove their technique by trying to beat the speed record of the latter. Played more slowly, I rediscover a completely different story that completely changes the nature of the song. The same pattern that is repeated in different tones. A principle that we find more and more today in composers like Ludovico Einaudi, Yann Tiersen, Hans Zimmer … The Chopin Nocturnal 1 made me develop the independence of the hands, as well as the management of large arpeggios, Beethoven’s Moonlight made me develop the interpretation and the weight of each finger, each gesture, here , this prelude made me develop dexterity and memory
