I have a 2-LP DG set of Kirkpatrick playing Bach -- a compilation c. 1975.
I recall that I bought it for the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue. The BBC was
comparing recordings of this work on their Saturday morning programme
"Building a Library". I remember vividly that the Kirkpatrick recording
was dismissed summarily, after playing a brief passage. I recognised it
instantly as the only recording I wanted to listen to and went out and
bought it (the label says £ 3.50).
Also on this double album:
Prelude in C (WTCI)
Fantasia in C minor
All the Two-part Inventions
Capriccio sopra la lontananza...
The recordings are from 1959-1952.
