Finding a Song in the Well-Tempered Clavier
on: June 14, 2015, 04:48:41 AM
I'm currently finding a song in Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier Bk. 1. Any suggestions of an Prelude with three sharps of flats or more and isn't flat-out hard?

I don't know why I'm being like this today. Maybe it's because c minor, c# minor, E Major, g# minor, f minor, bb minor, Db Major, and eb minor are my fav keys. IDK
I made an account and hadn't used it in a year. Welcome back, kevon.

I am currently trying to decide, too. I like all the pieces in c keys (including flat and sharp) from Book 2.
Why do you want only prelude suggestions? Don't you feel like playing a fugue? ;)

Why don't you read through them a bit and decide based on that?  Whether or not something is easier or harder than something else very much is on a pianist-by-pianist basis.

The E major prelude from Book I is pretty straightforward and nice to listen to.
