I am currently preparing the Bach accompanied sonata and have an issue bugging me in the first movement. It is in six eight but the more I play it the more I feel a temendous tension within the movement becuase it really wants to be in three four. In order to create a sense of two in abar one really has to play it somewhat faster than feels right at least on a modern instrument. The recordings I have (Szeryng, Laredo) play it rather slowly and romatically. Has anyone found themsleves peturbed by this antagonism and tried ot resolve or highlight it or whatever?
