Fantasia in C major, BWV573
The Fantasia in C, BWV573, was written into the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach; its twelve bars are pregnant with motifs which would clearly have given rise to a work of considerable length and richness had the composer chosen to continue it. The fact that an organ piece was included in a collection of predominantly harpsichord pieces has given rise to the speculation that Anna Magdalena wished to learn the organ. (Has anybody yet researched the subject of female organists in the eighteenth century?)
