Con la stesura dei 24 Preludi e Fuga (BWV 846-869) Bach partecipa alla vexata quaestio intorno al “temperamento” e si inserisce in un dialogo che a partire dal Rinascimento raggiunge, con echi non meno intensi, le declinazioni novecentesche in merito alla suddivisione razionale dei suoni. Stabiliti gli elementi che costituiscono il modello compositivo, il preludio e la fuga, il compositore sperimenta le potenzialità armonico-contrappuntistiche del sistema basato sulle tonalità maggiori e minori cogliendo tutti gli stimoli provenienti dal crescente interesse verso l’ordinamento cromatico.
Anche nel Clavicembalo ben temperato, come in gran parte della produzione bachiana, emerge l’influenza dello stile musicale italiano. Nel caso specifico uno dei riferimenti principali è sicuramente Girolamo Frescobaldi, l’unico compositore italiano citato da Philipp Emanuel Bach tra gli autori apprezzati e studiati dal padre sin dagli anni della gioventù artistica.
With the drawing up of the 24 Preludes and Fugue (BWV 846-869) Bach takes part to the vexata quaestio about the “temperament” and is enclosed in a dialogue that, starting from Renaissance reaches, with not less intense echoes, 900hunderth declinations concerning the rational division sounds. Once the composer has set the elements constituting the composing model, prelude and fugue, the composer experiments the harmonic-contrapuntal potentialities of the system based on major or minor tonalities, taking all incentives deriving from the growing interest towards the chromatic arrangement.
Also in the Well-termpered Harpsichord, just like in most of Bach’s production, the influence of the Italian style stands out.in the specific case, one of the main reference points is definitely Girolamo Frescobaldi, the only Italian composer quoted by Philipp Emanuel Bach among the authors appreciated and studied by his father ever since the years of his artistic youth
