This is the debut recording of the phenomenally gifted 10-year-old prodigy Albert Wong performing J. S. BachÆs Well-Tempered Clavier (Book 2,Complete).

BachÆs monumental keyboard masterpiece, The Well-Tempered Clavier, hardly kidÆs play. Yet, 10-year-old child prodigy Albert Wong performs
the 24 preludes and fugues that encompass Book 2, with wisdom and ease far beyond his years. This recording is truly extraordinary û a testament of
youthful exuberance and a young musical mind at one with the genius that is J. S. Bach. A first in recorded history.

No other 10-year-old musician has ever ventured to record this music. This is a phenomenal debut recording!
