Johann Sebastian Bach : Prelude no. 14 from Book 1 of the Well-Tempered Clavier

Taken from Johann Sebastian Bach's The Well Tempered Clavier, or The 48 Preludes and Fugues, this prelude should ideally be played at a lively tempo, with smooth semiquavers and dettached quavers. Bach's Preludes and Fugues come in matched pairs in the same key, and are often (though not always) played as a pair in the order Prelude first and then Fugure. Here is the corresponding Fugue for this Prelude, which is a little more difficult to play. A must for any serious student of piano, the complete Book 1 and Book 2 are available from Sheet Music Plus.
