To mark the 300th Anniversary of the publication of Book I of The Well-Tempered Clavier, Julien Libeer had the idea of presenting it in an unusual light: here he initiates a dialogue in which Bach's major- key prelude-and-fugue pairs 'converse' with later pieces (in the corresponding minor keys) by composers who, in their own way, have built upon the advances Johann Sebastian made in his foundational undertaking. Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninov, Ligeti and Schoenberg are all part of the conversation with the Leipzig Cantor in this intricate play of mirrors.
