J.S. Bach: Prelude And Fugue No.7 In E Flat Major Book 2 BWV 876

Books | Piano

Publisher: Edwin Ashdown
Format:

J. S. Bach (1685-1750) was a German Baroque composer who is revered for the originality and skill of his contrapuntal and harmonic techniques. Although he spent most of his life working as an organist and choirmaster, he was familiar with many different keyboard instruments. He utilised this knowledge when composing his two volumes of The Well-Tempered Clavier (1722 and 1742), each a collection of 24 Preludes and Fugues in which he explored the different harmonies of every key.

Prelude And Fugue In E Flat Major BMV 876 is No. 7 from Book Two of the Clavier. It is written in a typical Baroque form. This popular edition from the highly-regarded musicologist Orlando Morgan is designed with the performer in mind, and is still seen as the best edition available for students today.

        Too many pages - my Tovey edition just 2 pages each for the Prelude and the Fugue and I think the print is bigger.(Do not have it to hand).
