Re: Feinberg

I've said it here before (I think); but it's certainly worth saying again:
Feinburg's WTC is a phenomenon.  The tempi are, by today's standards, quite
wild.  But I happen to love his interpretations.   Right up there with
Richter as one my all-time favourite WTC's on piano.   He's actually better
than Richter, I dare say, in much of Bk 2, but does not plumb the depths in
Bk1 in the way Richter does (and probably only Richter can).
