Praeludium in E minor, BuxWV143
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Praeludium in E minor, BuxWV143, begins with a pedal solo whose material generates most of the introduction’s twenty bars. The first of the fugal sections is based on one of the shortest and most unusual of Buxtehude’s subjects (eight notes, but only three pitches). The last of its pedal entries is followed by a free episode and then by a second fugue whose subject is a triple-time variant of that of the first. A free Adagio coming to rest over a long-held tonic pedal brings the work to a grand conclusion.
