Analysis of Bach's 48 Preludes & Fugues Book 1

But it is also very complex music, with many voices doing many things at the same time. Hearing and understanding everything that is going on is not straightforward, and it is not something that can be achieved just by listening, even after many repeat listenings. To fully comprehend how this music is crafted, it is necessary to read it. Reading and listening to this Bach masterpiece just got easier with a new video that combines two open source scores with the piano playing of Kimiko Ishizaka to present you a complete performance of the Well-Tempered Clavier. The Fugues, in particular, are quite special in this video. For each Fugue, the score separates the voices into their own lines, so you can see how all of them fit together.
