Fugue in C major, BWV953

composer

 
The Fugue in C major, BWV953 is to be found in the Notebook for Wilhelm Friedemann Bach which also contains the first drafts of the Inventions, Sinfonias, and eleven of the Preludes from Book I of The Well-Tempered Clavier. The main point of interest here is its resemblance to the C major Fugue in Book II of the ‘48’ – also in three parts, also largely made up of running semiquavers, and in the same joyous mood.

La Fugue en ut majeur, BWV953 figure dans le Recueil de Wilhelm Friedemann Bach qui contient aussi les premières esquisses des Inventions, Sinfonias et onze des Préludes du Livre I du Clavier bien tempéré. Le principal intérêt réside dans sa ressemblance avec la Fugue en ut majeur du Livre II du Clavier bien tempéré – également conçue à trois voix autour de traits de doubles croches et d’une humeur également joyeuse.

Français: Isabelle Battioni

Das Fuge in C-Dur, BWV953 ist notiert in dem Clavier-Büchlein für Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, in dem auch die ersten Entwürfe der Inventionen, Sinfonien sowie elf Präludien aus dem ersten Teil des Wohltemperierten Klaviers aufgezeichnet sind. Am interessantesten ist die Ähnlichkeit zu der C-Dur Fuge aus dem zweiten Teil des Wohltemperierten Klaviers: beide sind dreiteilig, bestehen hauptsächlich aus laufenden Sechzehnteln und beide haben eine heitere Atmosphäre.
