Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier

Claudio Martínez Mehner, piano, and Kennedy Moretti, harpsichord

Johann Sebastian Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier (selection)

How should the The Well-Tempered Clavier be performed, on the harpsichord or on the piano? On both. While from a historical point of view the basis of this debate is dubious (Bach composed the work for “keyboard” without specifying a particular instrument), from a modern aesthetic standpoint both proposals are valid, as this performance shows, alternating between preludes and fugues on both instruments.
