From: Ed Herrmann
Series: Wake Up and Hear the Roses
Length: 03:45

all 24 fuges from the Well Tempered Clavier at once! Read the full description.

Default-piece-image-0 An encore for listeners in a hurry. The program in which we heard 24 Bach preludes at once produced quite a clamor from listeners. The only sensible response is to complete the set, so a-fugue-ing we will go. Here are all 24 fugues from the Well Tempered Clavier compressed into three minutes. Once again, all the notes, in the right order, at the right tempo, just all piled up into a delicious piano slurp.
