I found Gulda's hand precise and full of feeling, neither too "mechanical" nor too romantic. This is the natural compliment to his recording of Book I. It gives a sense of Bach's entire design at composition. A 2-CD set for the price of one. Great listening fare for those who seek composition instrruction. The sequence is prelude then fugue through 24 different keys.

An acceptable second choice after Gould. I personally listen to gould at home and to gulda at the office ( when staying late ).

Very fine piano interpretations. This set is probably one of the better renderings of both books out there. Gulda manages to use dynamics to emphasize the mood and spirit of each piece, yet, he doesn't lose the harpsichord feeling within each piece.
