Fugue in G major, BWV581
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The little three-part Fugue in G major, BWV581, survives on a single manuscript sheet which also contains an anonymous chorale prelude. The fugal working is not very developed but the composer creates variety by ocasionally omitting the first three notes of the theme. An alteration to the rising interval at the end of the second bar also serves to heighten its expressive effect.
