Bach -  Well Tempered Clavier Book II, Fugue in E Major

Glenn Gould, Pianist

This is by far my most favorite fugue in the world!

Well Tempered Clavier

Is the single best piece of work I have listened to. Every time I am listening to something besides Bach, or the WTC I find myself yearning to listen to Well Tempered Clavier. Fugues have got to be 90% of the reason I love Bach or even anything to do with music. I live for fugues. The moment the Fugue in C major from book one hits my ear drums I am instantly transfixed. The way it builds off of the first theme is irreplaceable. It takes me to another world and instantly reminds me of why I am studying music.

Prelude and Fugue nº 3 in C Sharp Major from Book 2 of the Well Tempered Clavier.

The fugue might be my favourite of all, mostly because of the performance…that tempo!! Took some serious will power.
