About The Composers
Johann Sebastian Bach
Ave Maria by Bach/Gounod is one of the most popular re-arrangements of J.S Bach’s music.
piece is often performed with a singer and piano accompaniment, with a
violoncello and piano accompaniment, or simply as a piano solo.
In 1722 J.S Bach wrote the famous work “The Well tempered Clavier” part 1. Twenty years later he completed another set of preludes and fugues, which is now referred to as part 2.
This work in two parts, has become a staple for every serious pianist. The two volumes contain a Prelude and a Fugue for each of the 12 major and 12 minor keys, beginning with the very popular Prelude in C major.
The C major prelude is one of the easiest pieces in this collection, and I really recommend giving it a go! You do need to have learned to read notes well, and be able to play 16th notes evenly. The C major Prelude is not for the absolute beginner, but more on an intermediate level.
