Excellent video explaining why pianos can never be in tune.
Bach's C Major Fugue, BWV 846, features 24 entrances of the the theme. The theme occurs 24 times in this fugue. There are 24 fugues in the cycle of the Well-Tempered Clavier (Book 1), two fugues for each of the twelve tonal keys -- once in major, once in minor (2 x 12 = 24). Bach loved numbers, symbolism, and symmetry, so this is likely his way of showing that he intended to write 24 fugues altogether. See if you can hear each entrance while you listen to Kimiko Ishizaka performing it.
Unbridled joy, from beginning to end.
Simply beautiful: The Prelude #1 from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier.
Pure joy in sound: one of J.S. Bach's singular abilities is to write truly joyous music.
The C-Sharp Minor fugue is an animal! It builds to a climax in the bass that hits like a cannon (haha!)
