ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Editor's Notes:
Johann Sebastian Bach (1684-1750) was one of the great teachers of his day. His prolific work as a composer of music for keyboard instruction is astounding and unparalleled. Acquiring good technique was very important to Bach, and he spent much of his time creating exercises to help improve his students playing. He often developed these "exercises" into music of great beauty and intellectual genius. Among these works, the "Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach," the "Eighteen Little Preludes," and the "Two-Part Inventions" are all still at the core of piano instruction and learning today.

The Eighteen LIttle Preludes are an excellent supplement for students who have played many pieces from the "Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach" and are note quite ready to begin studying the "Two-Part Inventions." Students begin to use a wide variety of ornaments, become more at ease with two-part playing, and develop finger independence and technical facility. In this recording, Ms. Hidy's clear execution of ornaments also includes the Baroque custom of adding or "improvising" additional ornaments, particularly for variety in repeated sections.

Academy Records hopes that this will be a practical resource and valuable contribution to your music library. If we fail to live up to your expectations in any way, please feel free to write to me personally.

Sincerely,
Keith Snell, Producer
Academy Records
