Prelude and Fugue in G major, BWV541

composer
arranger

 
The Prelude and Fugue in G major BWV541 is one of Bach’s most joyous and uplifting creations, and there is something of the same exuberance in Goedicke’s audacious arrangement. His fondness for widespread textures tests the agility of hand and arm almost to the limit at times, but the intrinsically pianistic nature of their deployment ensures that it presents no real impediment to the indomitable energy of the music.

Le Prélude et Fugue en sol majeur, BWV541 – l’une des créations les plus joyeuses et les plus édifiantes de Bach – véhicule une exubérance que l’on retrouve un peu dans l’audacieux arrangement de Goedicke. Sa prédilection pour les textures larges éprouve l’agilité de la main et du bras, jusqu’à la limite parfois, mais, grâce à leur déploiement intrinsèquement pianistique, ces textures ne font pas véritablement obstacle à l’indomptable énergie de la musique.

Français: Hypérion

Das Präludium und die Fuge in G-Dur BWV 541 gehören zu den fröhlichsten und erbaulichsten Werken Bachs und in Goedickes kühner Bearbeitung ist ein ähnlicher Überschwang vorhanden. Seine Vorliebe für weitgespannte Strukturen stellt die Beweglichkeit der Hand und des Arms zuweilen sehr auf die Probe, doch sorgt die immanent pianistische Natur des Werks dafür, dass dies niemals der unbezähmbaren Energie der Musik im Wege steht.
