Fugue in D major, BWV580

composer
doubtful attribution

 
As various commentators have pointed out, the subject of the Fugue in D major, BWV580, is very similar to the counter-subject of the Allabreve, BWV589. There is little in the way of fully developed fugal writing but the long sequences, based on figures from the subject, give it a breezy, optimistic air.

Comme l’ont souligné divers commentateurs, le sujet de la Fugue en ré majeur, BWV580 est fort semblable au contre-sujet de l’Allabreve, BWV589. L’ensemble ne comporte guère d’écriture fuguée pleinement développée, mais les longues séquences, fondées sur des figures extraites du sujet, créent une atmosphère désinvolte, optimiste.

Français: Hypérion

Wie diverse Kommentatoren dargelegt haben, ist das Subjekt der Fuge in D-Dur BWV 580 dem Gegensatz des Allabreve BWV 589 sehr ähnlich. Von voll entwickelter fugaler Stimmführung ist kaum etwas zu entdecken, doch die langen Tonfolgen auf der Grundlage von Figuren aus dem Subjekt verleihen dem Stück eine unbekümmerte, optimistische Atmosphäre.
