This is a delightful collection of 18 short preludes composed by J.S. Bach and edited here for Piano by Hedwig McEwen and Kethleen Long.
The preludes are here grouped in three sets of six each. The first group comes from the Wilhelm Friedemann Bach Notebook, compiled by J.S. Bach for the instruction of his eldest son. However Nos. 3 & 6 may have been composed by the son, under the guidance of his father. The second group, which has been preserved in copies made by his pupils, was probably composed by Bach himself. The third group comes from the collection of Johann Peter Kellner - Nos. 1-4 were probably the work of Bach's pupils, but no.5 and no.6 were undoubtedly written by Bach.
Prelude in E minor is included as an alternative piece for ABRSM Piano Grade 5, 2017-2018
Selected for the ABRSM Harpsichord Grade 4.
