David Russell plays Bach’s “Prelude, Fugue and Allegro in Em”

You might notice that Russell’s version adds some ornamentation two minutes in that most performers of this piece don’t use, but it seems to well up in him as an outflowing of his being genuinely connected to the music. He’s really enjoying it! The ornamentation is consonant with Baroque style, his “fingerings” are truly masterful, and his interpretation works (in my humble opinion)!

I love this version!
