The rhythm at the beginning has a driving force which pushes this Prelude further away. But you may think this rhythm difficult to play because the look of this score is unfamiliar to you. Once you get it, there is no problem. It will take you to the fantastic world.
By the way my great husband Johann Sebastian tried to write a keyboard music manuscript on the grand staff with G-clif for this No.17 Prelude and Fugue, which he has seldom done it except No.1 Prelude and Fugue of WTC 2. There is a G-clif enigma which young Mr. J. C. Altnikol will guide you.
