Praeludium in G major, BuxWV162
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
