Lovely playing
Very precise. It is so nice to hear Bach's work. Are these your own variations? This looks like quite an ambitious project, and I'm eager to hear more.

Really excellent
I love the sound and freedom of these variations. Almost funky in a way - I can get inside what's happening. Very cool.
