bwv 532 (studio class performance)

Here is a secret post for those of you who have come to the blog.

This is my performance of the Bach Prelude in D Major, BWV 532, in studio class, in Fall 2020.

You will surely notice that in this performance I decided to stray from how I played it in the video recording, and used the principal chorus of the Hauptwerk and Ruckwerk coupled together, instead of the Hauptwerk and Bovenwerk. I decided not to take the risk wether or not the Bovenwerk would have "fallen out of tune" with the Hauptwerk, due to one division being situated directly on top of the other, and the heating altering the tuning of one division more than the other.
