Praeludium in A major, BuxWV151


The Praeludium in A major, BuxWV151 opens in typical extemporary style, in this case with exceptional brilliance. The first fugue is based on a subject featuring descending thirds and a counter-subject rising by step. There follows a sustained passage, before the work is brought to a close with a short, sturdy second fugue.

Le Praeludium en la majeur, BuxWV151 commence, pour ne pas changer, dans un style improvisé, mais avec un brio exceptionnel. La première fugue repose sur un sujet présentant des tierces descendantes et sur un contre-sujet s’élevant par degrés conjoints. Après un passage tenu, l’œuvre s’achève sur une seconde fugue, brève et déterminée.

Praeludium in A-Dur, BuxWV151 beginnt in typisch improvisatorischer Manier, in diesem Fall mit außergewöhnlicher Brillanz. Die erste Fuge basiert auf einem Thema mit absteigenden Terzen und einem stufenweise aufsteigenden Kontrapunkt. Es folgt eine sostenuto-Passage, bevor das Werk mit einer kurzen, soliden zweiten Fuge schließt.
