Prelude No. 3 (BWV 848)
arranged by Bruce Stark
(flute and piano)
Prelude No. 3 (BWV 848) is one of my favorite preludes in Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. The word "arrangement" is perhaps a bit misleading, as I endeavored to create a new work based on the prelude but employing new material as well, influenced by my own harmonic and rhythmic sensibilities. I hope the listener enjoys this view of Bach's amazing, lively little piece through a contemporary lense.
Prelude No. 3 was recorded by flutist Kaori Fujii and Bruce Stark in 2003 as part of Ms. Fujii's CD entitled Aria (Victor Entertainment)
