Bach Project Takes Off from the Street: "Recording the 48"
Each of the two volumes of Bach’s Well-tempered Clavier contains one prelude and one fugue in every major and minor key. Often called “the 48”, or the “Old Testament” of piano music, it is perhaps the most important keyboard work of all time. The first stage of a new recording of the complete set by pianist Martin Sturfält is now available from Piano Street for listening and downloading; seven of the Preludes & Fugues from Book 1 as well as two from Book 2. Whatever you are doing at the moment, take a three minute break and refresh your mind with the free sample we offer of the Prelude and Fugue in E-flat from Book 2. Read more >>
