The Well-Tempered Clavier Fugue 4, Book 1, BWV 849 Sheet Music
also known as Das wohltemperierte Klavier, Fuge 3, Fuga 4, Buch 1, Das wohltemperirte Clavier, Le clavier bien tempéré Sheet Music
Artist and Writer: Johann Sebastian Bach (also known as J. S. Bach)
The Well-Tempered Clavier (a.k.a. Das wohltemperirte Clavier/Das wohltemperierte Klavier) by Johann Sebastian Bach is a collection of solo keyboard music. There are two volumes entitled Book 1 and Book 2, and often the abbreviation WTC Bk 1/Bk 2 is used. The pieces have the BWV catalogue numbers 846 - 893. Originally the pieces were not published under this title (but as preludes and fugues), in fact the two Well-Tempered Clavier books were published some years apart, in 1722 and in 1744. The pieces of the Well-Tempered Clavier were probably intended as study pieces for his students, as Bach himself indicated that they were "for the profit and use of musical youth desirous of learning, and especially for the pastime of those already skilled in this study". The unique aspect of the Well-Tempered Clavier is that there are 24 sets of Preludes and Fugues, with each set using a different major and minor key. The first set is in C major, the next in C minor, etc. Thus the Well-Tempered Clavier has a set for each major and minor key found in the circle of fifths.
