Don Freund composer
J.S. Bach composer
Although we’ve all heard countless variations of J.S. Bach’s ubiquitous Well-Tempered Clavier, from a subtle grace note added to Prelude and fugue in D minor to a dramatic rest added to Prelude and fugue in A major, composer and pianist Don Freund takes Book 1 of Bach’s masterpiece and offers analysis with “A Composer’s Approach,” a unique, critical eye for a series of miniatures that are typically viewed through the lens of a performer. Freund’s two-disc set of composer-centric interpretations are accompanied by a DVD of his composition lessons, a series of videos that provide deeper insight into the master’s works and his processes behind his works.
