Tineke Steenbrink | J.S. Bach Prelude and Fugue from WTC I BWV 851 / by Chris Foley

After 7 and a half hours of teaching, I just realized that I’m a full day late in celebrating the birthday of J.S. Bach. This recording of Tineke Steenbrink playing the D minor Prelude and Fugue from Book I of the WTC is part of the Netherlands Bach Society’s All of Bach project. If you would like to consider donating to help continue the project, check out this link.

I like the way that the videography emphasizes the simplicity of the studio (Ikea shelving! Tons of books!) as much as Tineke’s perceptive and elegant playing. Note the very happy audience member at 2:24.
