This is the fifth release in Angela Hewitt's universally acclaimed series of Bach's keyboard music which is fast being seen as the definitive modern recording of this repertoire on the piano.
Bach's Well-tempered Clavier ('The 48') consists of two books of 24 Preludes and Fugues in all the major and minor keys, and has been described as the pianist's 'Old Testament'. For over two hundred years these pieces have been the foundation of every pianist's repertoire.
All of the music on this album is also available as part of the specially priced box set: ‘If you missed Hewitt's '48' the first time around, don't look this gift horse in the mouth’ (Classics Today).
