Didn't record? It's in the same CD you mentioned in your reply. At least should
be according
(I've heard it - he's even humming a bit in the recording and I always thought
was the indication he was moved by the piece).

Anyway, he certainly did not record the 903 fugue. What recording could you
recommend then? I could probably get Schnabel and Arrau.

I'm making a CD (for personal use) that would include ALL Bach's solo keyboard
pieces (in MP3 format) and of course need the Fugue.
