Overview

Miscellaneous Keyboard Works: Toccatas, Fugues and Other Pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach

This volume brings together a wide selection of Bach's keyboard compositions, including many pieces difficult to find in other editions. Included are several well-known works: the important harpsichord toccatas, the Capriccio on the Departure of His Most Beloved Brother, the Aria Variata alla Maniera Italiana, and the Six Little Preludes, as well as many lesser-known but significant pieces — fugues, sonatas, and other works — over 40 in all. Reprinted from the authoritative Breitkopf and Härtel edition, the music in this inexpensive yet well-made volume offers pianists a rich selection of interesting works stamped with the melodic and rhythmic invention and harmonic audacity characteristic of Bach.

About the Author


Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) was a prolific German composer and organist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments exemplify the heart and soul of the Baroque period. A revival of interest and performances of his music began early in the 19th century and continue to this day. He is now widely considered to be one of the greatest composers in the Western tradition.
