Praeludium in G major, BuxWV147
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The first section of the Praeludium in G major, BuxWV147, is a good example of Buxtehude’s most flamboyant and expansive improvisatory mode; the noble fugue is based on a hymn-like, all-crotchet subject comparable in some ways with that of the E major Praeludium, BuxWV141. After the dominant cadence at bar 49 a second exposition begins (at 2'29''), based on a shorter version of the subject, and a brief coda rounds off the proceedings in typically Buxtehudian high spirits.
