g minor prelude and fugue from the first book; the fugue is a very logical and tightly orgaznied partita fugue in four parts, relatively easy to follow the voices though they echo each other in interesting crossings.

The above link leads to one of my recordings of Bach's Prelude and Fugue in G minor, WTC Book 1. (BWV 861)

Please give constructive criticism and tips on how I can improve.
I made some mistakes along the way, but I hope you will still enjoy it!

P.S- This is my first time posting on the forum:)

Is there anyone who has played Prelude G minor (WTC 1)? Do you use right pedal when you are playing trills? And by the way what do you think about pedalisation of Bach´s "piano" works...

Who here has played the G Minor Prelude and Fugue from book one? Any tips? The fugue is quite....difficult.  How long should I practice it hands apart? Thanks in advance.

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
