About this Song
'Prelude No. 1 in C major' is the first prelude in Bach's 'The Well-Tempered Clavier.' This collection of preludes and fugues in all 24 major and minor keys, dated 1722, is generally regarded as one of the most influential works in the history of Western classical music. 'Prelude No. 1' consists almost entirely of rising broken chords, which gives the piece a calming, romantic and majestic quality, which lends itself very well to period drama soundtracks. This performance uses a perfectly sampled Yamaha C3 Neo grand piano, with subtle hall reverb for ambience.
