Prelude and Fugue in E minor
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Finally we have the Prelude and Fugue in E minor which was written in 1926 and, like the earlier Op 62, was also later arranged for organ. It is dedicated to Leonid Nikolayev, a friend of Glazunov and also Shostakovich’s piano professor at the St Petersburg Conservatory. There is a great confidence in the musical material which, like the Idylle, Op 103, written in the same year, is surprising considering Glazunov’s poor health and general difficulties at the time.
