    Bach Prelude and Fugue in f minor Book 2

    One of the most popular - and deservedly so - prelude and fugues in Bach's "48" is the f minor Book 2. Written c. 1740, it is timeless.
    Here it is for GPO Harpsichord.

    Nicely done, Eugene, nicely done!

    And you're right... it is timeless. We'll probaby
    still be listening to The Master a thousand years
    from now, with the luster of his work undiminished.

    Thanks David for your comments, which I appreciate.
    I think Bach's greatest music is not merely "baroque" - but transcends time and sounds fresh even today.

    Eugene,

    Very nice performance of the Bach. The GPO Harpsichord has a great sound and does Bach justice.
