Das wohltemperirte Klavier 'The well-tempered Clavier' Book 1, BWV846-869
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Although we are used today to hearing the two books of Preludes and Fugues played as a set, they were not written in strict order, nor did all the fugues necessarily belong indivisibly to their designated preludes. Their beauty lies not so much in the logical progression but in the extraordinary variety of style. As such they are ideal candidates for study, and Bach probably used them, along with the inventions and sinfonias, ‘to teach clear playing in two or three obligato parts, good inventions, and a cantabile manner of playing’. Grainger certainly used them in his highly successful piano classes in America, working with four players on two pianos and encouraging the students to explore the possibilities of each individual voice. Grainger then united the two piano version into one score: John Pickard, in his introduction to the arrangement of the A minor fugue, paints an irresistible picture of Grainger setting out to transcribe utterly faithfully Bach’s original text, and being gradually overtaken by a wild longing to add, decorate and embroider, until ‘the printed copy is entirely abandoned in favour of Grainger’s own … version’—a remarkable insight into the workings of this astonishingly original composer.
