Praeludium in G major, BuxWV162

composer

 
The Praeludium in G major, BuxWV162 is a ‘prelude and fugue’ for manuals only. A fifteen-bar introduction leads to the first of the fugues, the subject of which is based on a descending figure. A short sustained passage is followed by the second fugue, a jolly, compound-time affair calling to mind the Fugue in C, BuxWV174; and a short extemporary coda rounds the work off.

Le Praeludium en sol majeur, BuxWV162 est pour manuels seuls. Une introduction de quinze mesures mène à la première fugue, dont le sujet a pour base une figure descendante. Après un court passage tenu, la seconde fugue survient: gaie, écrite dans une mesure composée, elle rappelle la Fugue en ut, BuxWV174. Une brève coda à l’improvisade clôt l’œuvre.

Praeludium in G-Dur, BuxWV162 ist ein „Präludium und Fuge“ für Manuale. Eine Einleitung von fünfzehn Takten führt zur ersten Fuge, deren Thema auf einer absteigenden Figur beruht. Einer kurzen sostenuto-Passage folgt die zweite Fuge, eine lustige Angelegenheit in zusammengesetztem ungeradem Takt, die an die Fuge in C, BuxWV174 erinnert, und das Werk wird mit einer kurzen improvisierten Coda abgerundet.
