Description

The Well-Tempered Clavier was the title given to the book of twenty-four preludes and fugues in all the major and minor keys, which was composed and compiled during Bach’s appointment in Kothen in 1722. Bach later wrote a further twenty-four preludes and fugues and so the forty-eight preludes and fugues eventually became collectively known as the Well-Tempered Clavier Parts 1 And 2.

Bach composed the Well-Tempered Clavier Part 1 ‘for the profit and use of musical youth desirous of learning, and especially for the pastime of those already skilled in this study.’ Even today these forty-eight preludes and fugues remain a necessity to all advancing pianists wishing to develop, secure and perfect technique and technical control.

The Well-Tempered Clavier is a major work, of great breadth and depth and musical, aesthetic, and psychological diversity and complexity. This Urtext edition, edited by Ernst-Gunter Heinemann and fingered by Andras Schiff, provides you with an accurate realisation of the composer’s original intentions, with thorough and detailed editorial markings and suggestions.

Beautiful engraving
Fingering is peculiar (e.g. using 1-5 for a small interval, like a third or second). Hard to understand distribution of voices between the hands in the fugues (but I guess they stuck to Bach's placement of voices in the staves)
