J.S. Bach Prelude No.1 in C Major

J.S. Bach Prelude No.1 in C Major

A solo piano arrangement of the famous and popular Prelude No.1 in C Major from Johann Sebastian Bach’s ‘Well Tempered Clavier’ Collection. It is also famous because of Charles Gounod who composed a melody for the Latin prayer Ave Maria and set set it to Bach’s prelude. (Not to be confused with the work by Franz Schubert, also named Ave Maria.)

This version is more upbeat than many and played in a style faithful to the original with minimal use of the sustain pedal.
