Prelude and Fugue in D minor 'Fiddle', BWV539
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Prelude and Fugue in D minor BWV539 offers something of a novelty – a transcription of a transcription. Bach’s organ fugue is itself an arrangement of the fugue from the solo violin sonata in G minor, following the original argument from bar to bar but amplifying what the solo violin could only hint at. The same could be said of Goedicke’s transcription even if some of his elaborations might have startled the composer. With admirable tact and discretion, he leaves the devotional simplicity of the Prelude almost untouched.
