TwoFourTwelve play Prélude et fugue by Tedesco

twofourtwelveDuo TwoFourTwelve play Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Prélude et Fugue No.IV from Les Guitares bien tempérées, Op. 199. Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (1895–1968) was an Italian composer and one of the few real treats of the modern guitar repertoire. His music is fantastic and these duos are no exception. Les Guitares bien tempérées, comprises of 24 preludes and fugues in all major and minor keys inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier. The 24 pieces are divided into four books. It is certainly one of the most important cycle of works ever composed for two guitars.
