The toccatas are some of Bach's most interesting and exciting keyboard works. There are very few recordings of the Toccatas on piano. This is a very beautiful performance by Rubsam. As far as I can tell he uses no sustain pedal, his rubato performance is extraordinary. This is not a dramatic piano performance, no loud pounding. It's expressive, lively and lyrical playing of these amazing and complex works. Recommended.

A most interesting approach. Opposite of Glenn Gould, plenty of rubato. Sounds a little strange at first, but grows on you until it is transcendental. BWV 911 (c minor) is particularly beautiful.
