As always,
beautifully played. You are so good at getting that Baroque sound in these variations. I confess, that if I'd tried a similar project, some 20th century 'pop' techniques and phrases would have crept into the music. I liked the lengths of these variations, and your short pauses helped me organize what I was hearing.
