About this edition

Based on J.S.Bach’s monumental Well-Tempered Clavier, these five miniature preludes and fugues are a great introduction to basic techniques of counterpoint and fugue playing.

The preludes are quite expressive while maintaining clarity and clean writing. These short pieces explore different moods and styles typical of 19th-century romantic music.

The fugues in this set are written with 2 voices but still manage to explore a wide variety of fugal techniques such as subject inversion, augmentation, and stretto.

 

Who's it good for?

This set is a great choice for beginner-level pianists looking to start learning about fugue and basic counterpoint techniques. 

While the preludes are easier, the fugues might prove to be more challenging than they seem to be. These short pieces are invaluable exercises in independence between hands, tone production, and voicing.
