Saturday Morning Cartoon: Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier

Friday, September 21, 2012

This week's cartoon features J.S. Bach's Prelude and Fugue No. 1 in C Major, BWV 846, from Book I of the Well-Tempered Clavier. We hear a performance by Glenn Gould, whose 80th birth anniversary we celebrate this Tuesday.

The fugue is featured in a "Music Animation Machine" video made by Stephen Malinowski.
