Johann Sebastian Bach BWV846 Prelude & Fugue C-dur Well-Tempered Clavier
Cembalo: Duemusici (Jin Kamei)
Das Wohltemperirte Clavier BWV 846-893, is a collection of solo keyboard music composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. He first gave the title to a book of preludes and fugues in all 24 major and minor keys, dated 1722, composed "for the profit and use of musical youth desirous of learning, and especially for the pastime of those already skilled in this study." Bach later compiled a second book of the same kind, dated 1742, but titled it only "Twenty-four Preludes and Fugues." The two works are now usually considered to comprise the Well-Tempered Clavier and are referred to respectively as Books I and II.
