The Prelude in C Minor (BWV 999) is a prelude, possibly for solo lute or another instrument written by the composer Johann Sebastian Bach, probably during the late 1710s or early 1720s.

The prelude starts in the base tonality of Dm. The D at the very start sets the mood. The use of a simple idea used to arpeggiate through the tonalities makes for the perfect masterpiece. The Prelude is constructed around 2 very simple yet devastatingly efficient musical ideas. The begging part of each repeated arpeggio presents the base arpeggio and the second part of the arpeggio is like the rounding up of the preceding arpeggio. The technique used is an harmonic progression where you see a chord change into the next chord very gently. The 2 bass notes at in the round up arpeggio present a counterpoint which in turns splits the listener's ear into a seemingly magical stereophonic listening experience. you can literally hear the 2 melodies move together as the piece moves.

An edition of this work that is arranged for piano is available under the title J. S. Bach: Eighteen Little Preludes, edited by Keith Snell. It has been widely adapted into other instruments such as violin, piano, guitar and in this case, Transposed to Bb Minor for Solo Viola. Fingerings were provided by Antonio Kotsev
