Summary/Abstract: One of the most popular collection of preludes and fugue on all notes of chormatic scale, ”Das Wohltemperierte Klavier”, belonging to Johann Sebastian Bach, represent the starting point of a long series of cyclical works with didactic purpose, made after the same pattern of tonal sequence. The didactic goal of the set, explicitly expressed by the composer in work prologue, and structural organization were important premises for subsequent revaluation of bachian model. This study aims to discover the relationship between teaching and constructivist side both in Wohltemperierte Klavier, but in its modern iterations, and the transformation over time of the original intent of the teacher Bach.
