Bach Selection from the Well-tempered Clavier Book 1

Handel Suite No 5 in E "Harmonious Blacksmith"

Schumann Kinderszenen; Arabeske

Beethoven Bagatelles Op 126


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

Handel's "Harmonious Blacksmith" is undoubtedly his most famous keyboard work and forms the last movement of one of his keyboard sites. It almost certainly dates from his early compositional life in Germany, but was published and popularised once he had become famous in England.

Schumann is often reckoned above all to be a master of the miniature. Kinderszenen, the Scenes from Childhood, are an especially good example of his art.

Beethoven's Op 126 Bagatelles were his last work for the piano, and display an unprecedented depth and complexity for pieces of their small size.
