Notes & Reviews:

Bach's set of 48 preludes and matching fugues is the ultimate in keyboard instruction. Intended for his son Wilhelm Friedemann, they consist of one prelude and fugue in each of the twelve major and minor keys, arranged in chromatic order. These works became the essential study for all the great pianists - starting with Bach's sons, through Mozart, Beethoven, Hummel, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and all the students of these great composer pianists.

"...Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier is one of the cornerstones of Western classical music. If you don't already have a preferred harpsichord version of it in your collection, for $24.99 (less than $6.25 per disc) you can't really go wrong with this set. Book I may not be all it could have been, but its shortcomings are more than offset by a fantastic Book II." -Fanfare
