J. S. Bach’s Prelude No. 1 from The Well-Tempered Clavier is perhaps one of the best-known piano pieces for beginner pianists. It is based on the patterns of lutenists, who would improvise in arpeggios, and follows a simple-yet-sophisticated harmonic trajectory. In a short amount of time, Bach demonstrates his thorough knowledge of harmony while still keeping the mood of the work reserved and clear.
