In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
I have a lot of things I want to tell you about this prelude. It is the last prelude for this Well-Tempered Clavier. But it opens the door to the infinity of music. The sign of infinity looks like the character eight, 8. And also "eight" indicates an octave. So this prelude opens the door to the next octave reincarnated.
You can hear and feel the tense and comfort of every harmony which every set of two notes makes here. This is the Well-Tempered Music World which only the clavier can create, and which strings can not.
You should play this prelude No.24 B minor in such a way that the left hand plays the prescribed notes while the right hand adds consonances and dissonance so that a well-sounding harmony results for the glory of God and the permissible delight of the soul.
This Prelude No. 24 has its own indications for the tempo
by me, J. S. Bach 1722.
I would like to listen to the Well-Tempered Strings.
But violinists and other stirngs players can not get rid of the Pure-Temperament Spell-bindings.
While I wrote, "I have a lot of things I want to tell you about this prelude." at the beginning of this page, I should not add any farther comment by myself because of some reasons.
Then my eligible son Carl Philipp Emanuel has willingly complied with my request for an in-depth analysis of this prelude No.24. He is one of the prominent music theoreticians of present days, well in 1744.
