Information about the piece

Prelude 2 C Minor, BWV 847 by Johann Sebastian Bach is part of the composer's Well-Tempered Clavier, a collection of preludes and fugues spanning all major and minor keys.

The song emanates from the Baroque period, a time known for its intricate compositions. Bach was heavily involved in the music theory development of this time, and the Prelude 2 C Minor is a testament to this.

Musically, the piece is brief but intense. Musicians will appreciate the technical aspects of the composition, including:

  • Bach's inventive use of counterpoint, with multiple voices interacting across the keyboard
  • The piece's chromatic harmony, blending together notes to produce a rich, resonant sound
  • Bach's emphasis on hand independence, requiring the performer to maintain different rhythms and patterns in both hands simultaneously
