Das wohltemperierte Klavier II, BWV 870-893 (Bach, Johann Sebastian)
Fugue in three voices. Musically, the structural regularities of the Well-Tempered Clavier encompass an extraordinarily wide range of styles, more so than most pieces in the literature. The preludes are also notable for their odd or irregular numbers of measures, in terms of both the phrases and the total number of measures in a given prelude. Each fugue is marked with the number of voices, from two to five.
Most are three- and four-voiced fugues, and there are only two five-voiced fugues BWV and , and one two-voiced fugue BWV The fugues employ a full range of contrapuntal devices fugal exposition, thematic inversion, stretto , etc. Several attempts have been made to analyse the motivic connections between each prelude and fugue,  — most notably Wilhelm Werker  and Johann Nepomuk David  The most direct motivic reference appears in the B major set from Book 1, in which the fugue subject uses the first four notes of the prelude, in the same metric position but at half speed.
Both books of the Well-Tempered Clavier were widely circulated in manuscript, but printed copies were not made until , by three publishers almost simultaneously in Bonn, Leipzig and Zurich. But, with the maturing of the Classical style in the s, the Well-Tempered Clavier began to influence the course of musical history, with Haydn and Mozart studying the work closely. Mozart transcribed some of the fugues of the Well-Tempered Clavier for string ensemble: Bach's example inspired numerous composers of the 19th century, for instance in Chopin started composing his 24 Preludes, Op.
In the 20th century Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his 24 Preludes and Fugues , an even closer reference to Bach's model. The best-known piece from either book is the first prelude of Book I.
Anna Magdalena Bach copied a short version of this prelude in her Notebook No. Helmut Walcha , better known as an organist, recorded both books between and on a harpsichord. Anthony Newman has recorded it three times — twice on harpsichord and once on piano. As of , over recordings have been documented,  including the above keyboard instruments as well as transcriptions for ensembles and also synthesizers.
Harpsichord performances of various parts of Book I by Martha Goldstein are in the public domain. In March , the pianist Kimiko Douglass-Ishizaka released a new and complete recording of Book 1 into the public domain.
