Notes & Reviews:

This box set consists of the complete Well-tempered Clavier series by J.S. Bach, performed by Jill Crossland. Colloquially known as the "48" from the two books of twenty-four preludes and fugues, these works form one of the great landmarks of keyboard repertoire. In Jill Crossland's own words, "No other music is so perfect an integration of emotional expression and intellectual rigour". Jill first performed the complete Well-tempered Clavier from memory as a student in Manchester.
