Bach's 48 Preludes and Fugues need no introduction; they are not only the most famous pedagogical msuical work every written but also great music. Jill's complete recording is released this year on Signum Classics.

Chopin's first scherzo was written in Vienna; the composer was homesick and based one part on a Polish Christmas carol.
