WTF:  The Well-Tempered February

A set of links to recordings of Bach's Well-Tempered Klavier, Book I, Prelude in C Major - Fugue in F Minor, recorded over the month of February 2020 on a Grotrian Steinway upright in Tampere, Finland.  Each recording is followed by a short commentary on the piece written at the time of recording.  To hear the recordings without pausing, click on the left picture above ("WTF: The Album") and the entire playlist will appear.  The image provided for each recording in the first set is in a different color, for reasons explained in the first post and in the blog.
