I have recently had the privilege and honor of being the producer of the best recording of J.S. Bach's "Well-Tempered Clavier" (Volume 1) ever made on the piano. My opinion - you're welcome to show me evidence to the contrary =)

Now there's a video on YouTube that combines the entire recording with the musical notation in a way that is bound to thrill music lovers and anybody studying these works. Two sources for scores were used. For the Preludes, the Open Well-Tempered Clavier score from Musescore was used. For the Fugues, the public domain engraving by Kyle Rother using Lillypond software was chosen. As a consequence, you can easily compare the default engraving styles of Musescore and Lillypond, side by side.

Enjoy the video - you deserve some Bach today!
