Yes I keep going back to the '48' to learn another one. I generally still prefer Book 2 and my favourite is no 14 (F# minor of course). Lovely lyrical Prelude, but the difficult fugue makes it a LRSM piece. I'm still trying to master one of the last 5 Beethoven Sonatas. I'm not far off with Op110 , but I must practice that fugue rather more ! Also working on Liszt 'Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude'
I used to be able to play most of Op 110 (a very fine work) but never the fugue, alas. I have always admired Stephen Hough's Bénédiction with its filigree like passages. Although being picky, the piece is somewhat overlong in my opinion.
I keep trying to get the Gmajor prelude from Bk II up to speed but no joy yet..... sigh... but I have better results from the beautiful Fminor P&F (Bk II)
Stephen Hough was born and raised in our small town. He is amazing ! Ive also been playing a couple of less demanding pieces from the same Liszt set. But I don't expect to even attempt 'Funérailles' . Going back to WTC2 , yes the F minors is not too difficult. Two less demanding ones from Book 2 are the C minor (no2) and Eflat major (no 7), I play the EFlat quite often..
Stephen on exceedingly good form here (from a very fine album):
