J. S. Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II BWV by Johann Sebastian Bach on Spotify

The prelude begins with a hint of the Aria from Bach 's Goldberg Variations, but immediately proves to be a wholly independent piece, although this fantasie, with its rhythmically varied treble melody, retains much of the Aria's solemnity. This gives way to a triple motet fugue, with its even more solemn primary subject entering first in the tenor, then the soprano and bass. The form and initial manner of expression may seem old-fashioned, but Bach has a surprise in store: two further, smaller-scaled subjects appear, and by the end all three subjects have combined.

The gently swaying, two-part movement of the 'Prelude in F-sharp major', BWV , makes it sound deceptively simple. After a short canonic opening, the right hand is restricted to a somewhat rambling melody in an endless festoon of notes grouped in threes, whereby the first of the three is often missing. The left hand remains alert and adds the missing note, so that the upper voice keeps up. With only an occasional melodic outpouring, the bass gently and swiftly steers the melody to a safe haven. The fugue opens with a robust theme that is parried by a briskly bouncing second part.
