Toccata in F major, BuxWV156
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The wonderfully flamboyant Toccata in F major, BuxWV156, begins with extemporary writing over a sustained low F, and there follows a compound-time section over the pedals’ lowest C. The first fugue has a subject easily recognized by its opening rhythmic pattern of three semiquavers followed by a crotchet. Improvisatory material leads to a short-lived second fugue, and, in the further improvisatory passages which follow, Buxtehude—here surely at his most phantasticus—leads one through a labyrinth of remarkable textures.
