Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr, BWV771

composer
some if not all probably by A N Vetter

 
Opinion is divided over the authorship of these seventeen variations based on the chorale tune which Bach probably set more than any other. Some scholars assign just the third and eighth variations to Nicholaus Vetter, a pupil of Pachelbel who succeeded his teacher in Erfurt, while others feel that the whole piece could be his work. Whoever the composer was, the work employs most of the techniques for varying chorales and displays unbounded energy and invention.

Les opinions divergent quant à la paternité de ces dix-sept variations fondées sur la mélodie de choral que Bach mit en musique probablement plus qu’aucune autre. Certains spécialistes attribuent les seules troisième et huitième variations à Nicholaus Vetter (élève de Pachelbel, Vetter succéda à son maître, à Erfurt), mais d’autres voient en lui l’auteur de toute l’œuvre. Quoi qu’il en fût, cette pièce recourt à la plupart des techniques de variations des chorals et montre une énergie et une invention sans bornes.

Français: Hypérion

Die Meinungen sind geteilt, was den Verfasser dieser siebzehn Variationen auf der Grundlage der Choralmelodie angeht, die Bach wohl häufiger als jeder andere verarbeitet hat. Einige Forscher schreiben nur die dritte und achte Variation Nicolaus Vetter zu, einem Schüler Pachelbels, der Nachfolger seines Lehrers in Erfurt wurde, andere meinen, die ganze Stückfolge könne von ihm sein. Wer auch immer der Komponist gewesen sein mag: Das Werk wendet die meisten Verfahren der Choralvariation an und besticht durch grenzenlose Energie und Erfindungsgabe.
