Find out more about the Well Tempered Clavier

On Sunday 20 March, extraordinary pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard comes to Saffron Hall for the first time to perform Book 2 of the Well-Tempered Clavier. Find out more about this iconic work below!

The Essay celebrates 300 years since the publication of the first book of The Well-Tempered Clavier by JS Bach, his landmark collection of Preludes and Fugues in every available key.

In this edition, film-maker, writer and satirist Armando Iannucci contemplates the role of hard work and craft in creativity, and the connection between the structure of music and the structure of comedy.
