Fuga in B flat major, BuxWV176

composer

 
The Fuga in B flat major, BuxWV176, a sprightly, three-voice work largely for manuals only, has a first subject which illustrates Buxtehude’s fondness for repeated notes. An episode improvisatory in character leads to the second fugue, which is based on a subject consisting entirely of semiquavers; and the third and final fugue is another of Buxtehude’s jigs.

La Fuga en si bémol majeur BuxWV176, une sémillante œuvre à trois voix essentiellement adressée aux manuels seuls, voit son premier sujet illustrer la tendresse de Buxtehude pour les notes répétées. Un épisode de caractère improvisé mène à la deuxième fugue, sur un sujet tout en doubles croches; la troisième et dernière fugue est, là encore, une gigue de Buxtehude.

Die Fuga in B-Dur, BuxWV176, ein munteres, dreistimmiges Werk, dessen Pedalstimme kaum zu Wort kommt, hat ein erstes Thema, das Buxtehudes Vorliebe für Tonrepetitionen illustriert. Eine Episode improvisatorischen Charakters führt zur zweiten Fuge, der ein Thema zugrunde liegt, das vollkommen aus Sechzehnteln besteht. Die dritte und letzte Fuge ist eine wiederum eine Gigue.
