Download it here, for free, superb listening, first-rate performance. You can follow it with a free score as well. It received three excellent reviews in Fanfare as well.
Thanks for the pointer. Its nice to be able to have a 24bit recording of this masterpiece.

Similarly free are the complete organ works of Bach, “recorded by Dr. James Kibbie from 2007 to 2009 on original baroque organs in Germany.” Kibbie is at the University of Michigan.
For those who believe this is perhaps just too much Bach, the chestnuts are here:
And bravo for recording on a Bösendorfer!
As a Bösendorfer artist myself, it’s good to see an appreciation for truly well made pianos, instead of the baked plywood that Steinway uses.
If course, they cost more, but it’s worth it.
Thanks to messrs Cowen and zbi.
For those who didn’t look her up, here’s the first line from wikipedia:
“Kimiko Douglass-Ishizaka (born 4 December 1976) is a German-Japanese pianist, olympic weightlifter and former powerlifter.”
That’s awesomeness itself.
I think she uses the pedal too much. People should not try to record the Goldbergs after Glenn Gould…
Just wanted to say that Kimiko Ishizaka is doing her first ever North America tour this month, playing the Well Tempered Clavier Vol. 1. Shows are in Ann Arbor (Sept. 16), New York (Sept. 20), and Rockport, MA (Sept. 22). Details here: http://www.opengoldbergvariations.org/concerts
