Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, organist,
harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and
secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo
instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque
period and brought it to its ultimate maturity.
Although he did not introduce new forms, he enriched
the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal
technique, an unrivalled control of harmonic and
motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms,
forms and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy
The Six Little Preludes (Kleine Präludien), BWV
933-938, are a group of preludes composed by Johann
Sebastian Bach for keyboard. These were conceived
between 1717–1720, but they were not published until
1802. These pieces are all short but require a deep
understanding of technique. Questions have been risen
about the authorship of some of the pieces, and it has
been suggested that Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach may have
reworked some sections.
Although originally written for Harpsichord. I created
this Transcription of the 6 Little Preludes (BWVs
933-938) for Piano.
