Prelude and Fugue in C major, BWV531
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
This work is indisputably by Bach, the Prelude and Fugue in C major, BWV531. An early work, possibly dating from his time at Arnstadt, it is a brilliant example of the ‘stylus fantasticus’, familiar from the works of Buxtehude, Lübeck and Böhm. From the characteristic opening pedal solo to the virtuoso passage-work and repeated-note fugue theme there is a feeling not only of youthful exuberance but also of mastery.
