Praeludium in C major, BuxWV136
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.
