'The Praeludium in F sharp minor brings the disc to an arresting conclusion. The performance is exhilarating and Herrick judges the pacing to perfect dramatic ends while also having the opportunity to show off his brilliantly agile pedal technique … this recording, along with its two predecessors in the series, is a first-rate addition to the catalogue. On this evidence, Herrick's next release should be eagerly awaited' (International Record Review)

Praeludium in C major, BuxWV136
composer

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Praeludium in C major, BuxWV136 begins with a short free section remarkable for the richness of its harmony. There follows a double fugue based on two very short subjects, the first having repeated notes, the second executing a stepwise descent. A leisurely free section over long-held pedal notes introduces the second fugue (Allegro) and after a very short free interlude a ‘jig’ fugue brings the work to a spirited conclusion.
