Description: Not to be confused with Moscheles’ Op. 137a, which were cello-and-piano versions of WTC preludes, these use a second piano (and alterations to the originals) to provide a highly Romantic view of Bach’s Preludes. Moscheles said the Fugues were “sacred” and didn’t touch them, so the performers here attach one of Schumann’s pedal piano BACH Fugues after two of the Preludes, which provides a fitting and attractive program. Duo Accord.
