I love the Italianate buffo bounce of this Prelude and the way that Pulcinella comedia del’Arte high-spirited conviviality carries over into the Fugue.
My 96-episode archive, Everything We Need To Know About Playing The Piano We Learn From The Well-Tempered Clavier, is now available at a special introductory rate of $20 for the first month of 10 episodes (that’s 2 /1/2 hours of material on the first 5 Preludes & Fugues), with at least 10 more episodes a month thereafter.
Never miss out on Christopher’s events or special notices.

I love that you gave this that Pulcinella feel.
