Johann Sebastian Bach was better known as a virtuoso organist than as a composer in his day. His sacred music, organ and choral works, and other instrumental music had an enthusiasm and seeming freedom that concealed immense rigor. Bach's use of counterpoint was brilliant and innovative, and the immense complexities of his compositional style -- which often included religious and numerological symbols that seem to fit perfectly together in a profound puzzle of special codes -- still amaze musicians today. Many consider him the greatest composer of all time.

The Well-Tempered Clavier (BWV 846–893), is a collection of solo keyboard music composed by Bach. He gave the title to a book of preludes and fugues in all 24 major and minor keys, dated 1722, composed "for the profit and use of musical youth desirous of learning, and especially for the pastime of those already skilled in this study." Bach later compiled a second book of the same kind, dated 1742, with the title "Twenty-four Preludes and Fugues." The two works are now considered to make up a single work, The Well-Tempered Clavier, or "the 48," and are referred to as The Well-Tempered Clavier Book I and The Well-Tempered Clavier Book II respectively. The Well-Tempered Clavier and Twenty-four Preludes and Fugues are generally regarded as being among the most influential works in the history of Western classical music.

Bach originally wrote this piece (BWV 848) in C major, transposing only when he needed to fill the C# major gap in his survey of all 24 keys. The prelude is bright, quick, and celebratory, with a fast, nattering element omnipresent either in the treble or the bass.

I created this transcription in order to simplify (in my mind) the right/left hand notation of the final measures. Although this piece is originally notated in C# Major, I transposed it to C Major.
