Fugue in D major, BWV580
composer
doubtful attribution

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
As various commentators have pointed out, the subject of the Fugue in D major, BWV580, is very similar to the counter-subject of the Allabreve, BWV589. There is little in the way of fully developed fugal writing but the long sequences, based on figures from the subject, give it a breezy, optimistic air.
