Enjoying this, I've not heard any Biber before. (That dissonance  - crazy for the 17 century!)
aaahh ignore me, I'm just trying to keep up with the thread.   I contribute with a bit of nonsense every now and then...         (If you plug your HD800 into a vintage NAD amplifier- you won't need to be on here as much. This is what happened to me!. ;) 
This is my recommendation for the much appreciated Arvo Part.    I'm choosing this recording over the many (more popular) available because it is a brilliant document of what Arvo Part is imo, and why he is such an important composer(It spans about 20 years of works). His music for me represents what most of us missed because we weren't around 500- 1000 years ago. By that I mean - his music is as pure as it gets and for the most part (no pun intended :) is based on...
Yup, we'll let him off with that one... But I do hope he takes on board what I've said before he tackles 'the well tempered clavier' !!

For me it seems he has a very simple ideology but he communicates it through his own unique and very complex means. My advice to anyone approaching his music is to just listen. Just listen with no preconceived ideas. For me, he touches very deep, primal deep... There are no social or political...
Pleased you're enjoying it bud :) His (Denk's) Partitas I'm less convinced with in regards to his style. Don't get me wrong some will love his Bach full stop. But the Goldbergs in my opinion need a leaning towards lyricism and dynamic - a playful rubato because the same key is used throughout. The partitas are more formal in structure and are also some the most complex music he wrote. Even Gould played these pieces mechanically. Denk's flowing, effortless playing can...
