    Or rather, I know it shouldn't be 3 against 2 but at the end of measure 15 in the WTC II F#- prelude, we have a triplet against two sixteenths. Anyone understand what to do here?

    Thanks

    You mean the F# minor prelude surely? Yes, it really is a two against three rhythm. It's something you don't see often in Bach, but there are a handful of examples.
