Prelude 3 in C minor, BWV 999- Bach
Prelude in C Minor, BWV 999, also termed The “Little” Prelude in C Minor, is a piece written by Johann Sebastian Bach sometime between 1717 and 1723. Though originally composed for Lute-Harpsichord (Lautenwerck) it has since been adapted for various instruments, including lute, piano and guitar. It is a pedagogical work much in the spirit of The Well-Tempered Clavier, with which it shares musical characteristics.
This piece is perfect for experimenting with the use of drum machines and automatic accompaniment of my CVP piano. This will slowly open the door to the use of DAW softwares in the future and create richer and more contemporary arrangements.
