J.S.Bach 48 Preludes & Fugues (The Well-Tempered Clavier)
The Well-Tempered Clavier – two books of preludes and fugues in all the major and minor keys – is the most famous example of Bach’s fascination with meticulously ordered collections of works exploring a particular compositional method or style in depth.
Within these 48 ingenious re-imaginings of the simple pairing of free, often improvisational prelude and the more strictly controlled contrapuntal structure that is the fugue, he achieves incredible variety, taking us on a richly expressive journey through many of the major keyboard styles and textures of his day.
