Katie Derham presents a concert in which pianist Joanna McGregor performs preludes and fugues by Bach and Shostakovich at LSO St Luke's, London.

LSO St Luke's Bach, Britten, Shostakovich

Joanna MacGregor (piano)

The first this week's series of Lunchtime Concerts exploring music by Bach, Britten and Shostakovich.

J.S. Bach's Well Tempered Clavier inspired Shostakovich to attempt the same feat, that is to write a prelude and fugue in each of the 24 major and minor keys, often quoting from Bach himself. In this recital the popular pianist Joanna MacGregor plays a selection of preludes and fugues from each composer, juxtaposed so as to compare the two compositions.

Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 1 in C major BWV 846
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue in C major
Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 2 in C minor BWV 847
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue in E flat major
Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 8 in E flat minor BWV 853
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue no 15 in D flat major
Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 15 in G major BWV 860
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue no 5 in D major
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue no 8 in F sharp minor
Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 24 in B minor BWV 869

Presented by Katie Derham.
