BWV884 • “The Well-tempered Clavier Book 2: Prelude & Fugue No. 15”

About this work

In the "simple" key of G major, Bach offers a light-textured toccata of a prelude that manages to give the fingers a good workout with its unstoppable, chugging rhythm. That pulse carries over to the three-voice fugue, a slight, almost flippant piece with the voices entering top to bottom.
