The names of the six short pieces already hint at the composer’s great admiration for Bach: Praeludio (I) – Fuga – Allegro di molto – Largo – Praeludio (II) – Toccata. The little cycle is of medium difficulty and thus equally appropriate for recitals or teaching purposes. The only questions raised by the autograph are the occasion for which Fanny Hensel wrote the pieces, and their time of origin. It is likely that she wrote her “Piano Book” shortly before 1830, around the time when she married the artist Wilhelm Hensel.
