This appears to be a favorite encore piece for Marta Argerich. Could I ever possibly play this that fast? I guess a girl can dream:

Hi Harriet-did you listen to Emil Gilels (
He puts a lot into that extra minute :)

Thanks, Carol, I'll check it out. I think I'm going to have to be satisfied with a sensitive rather than a virtuosic interpretation if I ever get that far with this piece. :)

I like Argerich's performance but it just seems too fast ..She's in great control but there are readings that are less speed driven. I am not sure harpsichordists of the Baroque era played that quickly.
