...a set of 24 preludes and fugues for keyboard inspired by Das Wohltemperirte Klavier.
I have long been struck by the similarities between baroque music and jazz. Also I love and admire the music of
JS Bach: so I set out to explore the possibilities of say a rag-time fugue, or a "passacaglia in blue". What would happen if you could combine a toccata
with a 12-bar blues, for example?
Prelude & Fugue 21 can be played simultaneously with No 11 (1 piano, 4 hands). Click

These pieces are published by Boosey & Hawkes.
