J.S Bach The Well-Tempered Clavier 48 Preludes and Fugues played in Thomas Young's Well-Temperament of 1799 by Frank French For the first time the Well-Tempered Clavier can be heard in the explicitly-stated, 18th Century well temperament that allows the characteristic of each major and minor key to emerge as intended during the time of the composer. A subtle but certain difference is apparent when this music is played in this authentic tuning. This four-CD set contains more than four hours of music with liner notes on the history and development of tuning keyboard instruments by Owen Jorgensen with French, Spanish and German language texts. This production, more than two years in the making, was expertly recorded using a Boesendorfer 225 concert piano.
