'Superlatives all round for the last instalment in this exuberant, outstandingly played series … excellent documentation, superbly recorded sound, an enchanting instrument and, of course, outstanding playing. The freshness and joie de vivre that Herrick brings to all Bach’s music makes this cycle a winner' (Gramophone)

'This is a most rewarding recital, very highly recommended' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

Little Prelude and Fugue No 1 in C major, BWV553
composer
by J T Krebs ?

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The opening motif of this binary work – semiquaver figuration over punctuating chords – has a flavour of the north German praeludium, while the chugging chord accompaniment of its continuation is typically Italianate. The lively fugue, whose subject is built on two short motifs, is one of the least developed of the set.
