About "Prelude in C" by Bach:
"Prelude in C Major" from Vol. 1 is the most famous prelude from The Well-Tempered Clavier by a German composer, J. S. Bach from the baroque era. Pieces from The Well-Tempered Clavier were created for keyboards such as harpsichord at that time. However, you can play it on the piano.

Tips for playing Level 4 "Prelude in C Major":
This sheet music on this page is at Level 4, and it's in the original form. There are only a few fingering numbers provided at the end of the piece. And there is no damper (sustain) pedal marking. However, you may use the pedal for each measure or twice per measure. Try your best for the last right-hand note of each measure not to carry over to the next measure. If you do so, it'll create a harmonic crash.
