Prelude and Fugue in G major, BWV541
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Dating from the Leipzig years (1724/5) is the Vivaldian G major Prelude and Fugue, BWV541, and like that in B minor it seems clear that both movements were written at the same time and for each other. Here the pulsing chords of the prelude presage the repeated note and gruppetto of the fugue’s subject, which is turned to good account in stretto both before and after the dramatic pause that announces the coda.
